Interestingly, after studying what this was it now looks like
this is how UUNET and MCI interconnect. You guys need to be more careful
about leaking this crud. Really though Cisco IOS shouldn't pass these
routes on. [infact all routeing software should flag it as an alarm ignore
it and not pass the message on].

Neil.
