Oi, nooo

Lets not recreate the v4 issues by suggesting it's just problematic, it
should not happen.

If you're going to add a prefix at least do it properly get PI, keep
PA as PA only. No PI too hard excuses.

If there were global stricter filtering at allocations then
the hijacking problem would be one less excuse for people
to justify crazy deaggregation
