Jon,

I hoven't heard anyone speaking about resticting CUSM, other than having
the software do some self-policing regarding overloading the net. The
recent messages from the EUNet folks showed a real-world concern about the
load that CUSM can place on planetary connections.

I can't really ascertain your illigitimate status (that would take a blood
test :-) but your use of CUSM seems to be withing the boundaries of
responsible good taste.
