Ah, but I do. Its a TestRoute that carries no other information.
This effectivly re-casts this prefix/mask into a tool for testing
reachability. Just becasue I have a BGP peer up does not equate to
route exchange. Once I send the TestRoute and you ack that it is received,
then I have a higher assurance that our exchange works.
