[lots of good stuff about how the domain address is not to be used for routing]
Consider also that the UUCP smarthost to which you send your (probably)
Internet-destined mail inevitably also makes some local decisions about how,
where and when to forward mail - as do most internet mail hosts. Your
smarthost will have its own smarthost, and so on ad infinitum.
So having a local decision at ve7foobar.ampr.org which uses a local lookup
table of TNC-reachable hosts before default-routing to the smarthost is not
at all inconsistent with what goes on Internet-wide.
