Maybe the solution to much of the EGP related problems it to have BBN
upgrade the core to meet the EGP specs., the problem where the core
says that it is the route to your network strikes me as a dangerous
bug that can easily result in a black hole in the INTERNET.
The less serious problems of incomplete status fields on error messages
and not peering with gateways that are not directly connected should
also be fixed. I have heard suggestions that the Butterfly gateways
should be used to replace the current 11/23s. I am concerned that
the code in these will be no better since it comes from the same place.
