He explicitly said "single-homed".  Of course, multi-homed requires different
handling, because you may hear their other home announce them (although again,
you probably shouldn't listen to *THAT* announcement either if *your* link to
them is up).  And I posit that if you don't know if your customer is single or
multi-homed, you have *bigger* issues to deal with.
