	seems like a good lead in, so yes - i advocate folks only
	announce what they use.  may play old-hob on the ISP that
	likes to use some other metric for accepting announcements,
	(e.g. RIR or other routing registry DB) and will no doubt
	increase the tension on justification of proxy announcements,
	but overall, this seems to be a good goal.

	thanks for letting me rant. :)
