So what I understand from your slides is basically that you acknowledge
the fact that it is theoretically possible for the setup to cause
temporary loss of connectivity (very minor packetloss) which may result
in DNS queries to timeout, but that the impact of such an event has
no real-life damage. 

I thought that it would be virtually impossible to get this actually
working outside of a lab-environment due to continuous route-changes on
the net. I stand corrected.
