I think an important point is that the implementation need not authenticate
a path before it can use it.  The vast majority of paths will not generate
authentication failures.  This policy does allow the temporary propagation
of bad information, but the system can heal itself quickly.  In the
meantime, it means that everyone else gets reasonable convergence time.
