As with anything else, report fires to trouble for fastest response.
It might be worth putting security down to serve a similar role as
routing (for questions or coordination not requiring immediate

BTW - do we want to mention "root" as the system administration of a
specific host to report things like "your multicast implementation is
broken and spewing ICMP packets" or other "fix that beast" messages.
