This would still be a node sending out HELLO (and maybe even TC messages if it 
has an attached network), so I would still consider it a router, just with a 
special configuration.

I think the problem is that the scope of the address model has no clear 
border. It should be done on the routers (but MANETs can and have been run 
with different address models), and it could be used for hosts closely 
attached to a MANET, but it's not necessary to do so.

But in my opinion it is still better it's still better to restrict the title 
as suggested in the WG meeting consensus that to make it too generic.
