If you have a "bad route" how do you know the rest of the update is good? The nlri may have gotten corrupted on the wire or between the interface and the processor (parity error, or some sort of corruption on the bus). Given that case, in an update, I am not sure you can make a determination of what is good nlri and selectively propogate and process those. See also meltdowns circa nov 1998. /vijay
