Hello Alex,

To second Charlie here: in MANETs, routers:

	o	ALWAYS have one MANET interface.
	o	OFTEN they have other (non-MANET) interfaces
	o	OCCASIONALLY have more than one MANET interface

I.e. it is quite common for traffic to be forwarded over the same  
interface as the one on which it was received.

Thomas

ps: and for the record, AFAIK all MANET wg routing protocols support  
all the situations listed above, i.e. a MANET router with a single or  
with multiple MANET interfaces and with or without other non-MANET  
interfaces.
