Ron, the reason your PAD is in the hosttable is because it is
physically connected to the MILNET and the NIC gets all copies of
connect orders for the MILNET and puts those hosts in the host
table. This has many benefits (for instance, connect to the NIC
and do a "WHOIS IMP 29") and isn't something we would
discontinue. 'nuff said?
