i sort of doesn't matter right? it is PROBABLY some form of
encapsulation (like gre, ip-in-ip, lisp, mpls, vpls, etc) ...
something to remove the 'internal ip network' from what is routed in a
datacenter and what is routed externally on the tubes.

Maybe a better question: "Why would lisp matter here?" (what makes
lisp the thing you grabbed at as opposed to any of the other possible
encap options?)
