Thank you. But what exactly necessitates devine leniency? You aren't taking my remarks to mean that it's a good idea to redistribute a full BGP view into an IGP, are you? What I'm getting at is a small setup where all transit and peering links are in the same location. The border routers at this location can inject a default into the IGP so the number of routes in the non-border routers stays nice and small.
