In theory, when the remote LMI goes down, or any part of the PVC internal to the
carrier goes down, the local LMI should go INACTIVE. In practice, this is
unreliable at best; for some carriers, you will always get ACTIVE status no
ATM has a similar feature/problem with ILMI. The only solution is to ignore the
carrier and do it yourself end-to-end (gosh, where have we heard that before?).
End-to-End Keepalives for FR:

Distinguish between INACTIVE and DELETED; those represent very different things
