	We (AS2914) stopped adding tunnel peers awhile ago, and only add
tunnels for customers at this point (i think).  As a tech guy, I prefer
people to connect to us native instead of any other method, it
removes all the sillyness i've seen (including v6 p-mtu issues).
It keeps the packets moving the best path and not cloaking the underlying
topology so people can find the trouble.  Same reason MPLS networks
don't always turn on/off ttl-decrement when following a (TE) tunnel.
It also makes it easier to troubleshoot and speculate where
troubles are ;-).
