We need to constrain rate*state in both DFZ routing (our primary goal)
and in the mapping system as well. In most of the proposed mapping
systems, the map request answerers are not involved in real time
operations. In order not to flood them with operational updates,
there's a tradeoff where the mapping system gives preliminary
information about ETRs that *might* be used, and then the actual
operational state of the ETRs is discovered by exchanging packets.
That dramatically reduces the amount of traffic between sites and the
map request answerers. On the other hand, in LISP ALT, the map
request answerers are themselves ETRs. Removing the division between
ETR and request answerer has a couple of useful results:
- If a prefix is unreachable because all of its ETRs are off the
air, then a Map-Reply is simply not returned.
- Only those ETRs that are up and running will respond to
Map-Requests. So if you get a Map-Reply you know which RLOC is
sure to work.

I don't see how that follows.
