Does this mean beyond import/export of route-prefixes?

Funny thing, if we consider a hierarchy of (manet) routing protocols,
we could use DLEP for this kind of exchange... The "lower level MANET
protocol" could just pretend to be an IP routing radio and use DLEP
with Link-ID extension to communicate its metric and reachable
prefixes to the "upper level MANET protocol".

I have a couple of additional things I want to introduce to the WG
when my current drafts (hopefully) will be adopted.

> Hybrid (proactive /reactive) Routing protocol
MANET WG failed at "reactive routing" because of non-technical
issues... I don't think Hybrid protocols would do much better. I still
remember the Chameleon disaster.

> Multicast
Not sure it is worth the effort... unless we have lots of spare
capacity, IP-multicast is often a bad solution for group
