RFC 1122 (Host Requirements, Communication layers),
section 3.1 (Introduction) says:                                             ......An Internet host that

                                             ......An Internet host that
      includes embedded gateway code MUST have a configuration switch to
      disable the gateway function, and this switch MUST default to the
      non-gateway mode.

Clear enough, I guess.
