Re: ipfilter, return-icmp and RFC1122

For example, a packet destined to is "destined to an IP
broadcast ... address".  But how is anyone except me and my immediate
upstream supposed to know that?  Everyone else will perforce treat such
packets just like their non-broadcast relations addressed to, say, - including ICMP generation.
