The issue is multiple POPs in a geographic region where customers could 
connect to either- if you have those and want them to work in adversity 
then you've got a problem as you need to allow the static addresses to 
propogate around.  When that number is small then it's not a problem, 
but when you've got it large scale then you have a routing problem.  
This is my fear.
