It means that a network suffering massive DDoS can switch off their
transit and peering links and turn itself to anything like "island mode"
operation, still keeping access to some of root and local TLD DNS
servers, local content and/or local users. Fortunately, it has been
never used except tests, but it is still an option when a network is in
such kind of trouble.

Routing manifesto cannot provide you anything in the oposite if you
comply it, except, maybe, good feeling. Fenix (or Dutch Trusted Network
Initiative) project can.
