Using maps implies that there is a central database that records the
current state of this fairly static connectivity information and that 
routing announcements would be verified against this database to ensure
that the announced routes correspond to edges on the map. So, who will
manage the database and how will it be distributed so that this database
does not become a single point of failure?

Also, do you know if Perlman's thesis is available on the net?
