Excuse me if I repeat myself.

I wanted to share explicitely a possible way forward that I discussed
with a number of colleagues, and that looked advantageous on our side:

- draft route-option would do all routes except default route.
- draft drlo would do only default route and no generic route.

This would satisfy the requirement of only one means to achieve one goal.

(I have discussed this privately with Tomasz, I think I rememember not
agreement; but I would dare now to try ask other opionion from WG
members - what do you think?)
