Windows ICS has been a thorn in everyone's side at one point or
another; I for one think that it's been a force for good, though, as
it's put protection against rogue RA on people's radar; without ICS
I'm sure I'd be having a lot of augments on NANOG about whether or not
RA Guard is needed with people saying "I run IPv6 without it and never
have problems" etc.
