Most times it works well. There are some special cases where neighbors of 
nodes with multiple similar IPs have problems to get a good idea of the LQs of 
their twohop-neighbor links. Because they are only identified by interface-

We have a working patch that every node only has one "routable" IP, so you can

propagated beyond your neighborhood will be your "global" IP and your attached 
networks (HNAs).
