Except above, you're claiming that adding a secondary interface is the
same as adding a route. It's not, as adding the secondary interface
provides a logical link between a layer 3 address and a layer 2 address,
so that ARP is not needed to find the next-(layer 3)-hop, only to find the
next layer 2 hop.
Again, let's move routing 101 to different venue.
