You know, most bars have bouncers at the door that check IDs. Sure, they're
not perfect, but the bartender can usually be pretty sure the guy ordering a
beer is over 21. The average bar isn't run by a soooper-genius. But it's still
considered fashionable to let packets roam your network without an ID check at
soooper-genius solutions aren't going to help any when there's a lot of
address space that's managed by Homer Simpson....
