    Seems, this flag (or even number) is necessary.
    And for IPv6 too, so that route "value" probably should be
    placed in dst_entry.

    At least, they have maximal value. It is supposed
    that kernel should send notifications every time when such
    route becomes stale. I still did not implement it
    neither in pimd nor in rsvpd, so that this place is reserved
    for future.

    Certainly, you are right. Especially, if we had more hands
    and less real problems 8)
