Another comment, this time on the OSPF model for handling point-to-point type
nets.  There are definite problems with scaling a designated multicast server
to suport large numbers of hosts on a single network.  The designated
server(and backup server) may end up as bottlenecks: imagine redistributing a
"multicast" message to 1000 hosts.  For 10-50 hosts it is probably just fine.
