If it's routed acting as a router discovery agent (only learning
default), that makes sense.
If it's routed speaking RIP, my understanding is that at least some
"purists" will now say that you are a router and shouldn't be
listening to redirects. i.e., the warning is appropriate, and perhaps
should be joined by a routed startup-time warning if sysctl
net.inet.ip.redirect is nonzero.
Does routed turn the redirect-routes into RIP host-routes? that would
