Why is it again that folks want to balkanize the Internet like this? Why would you intentionally put your customer base into this situation? If you are going to do this, why not just drop random packets to 'bad' destinations instead? I'm confused by the reasoning behind this public-root (alternate root) problem... It seems to me (minus crazy-pills of course) that there is no way for it to work, ever. So why keep trying to push it and break other things along the way?
