This will let know other routers to not deal with this bad behaving router for some time and clean up any tunnels that associates with that router (requires #1546).
Must be implemented in way that prevents any man in middle (ISP) to break connectivity using this feature.

for security reason clients should not be announced about routers shutting down. It will not help at all, as tunnels still need to timeout, still requiers 11 min max time.
Bad routers are not reachable, do not route tunnels or are slow. Those are ignored already.
Why removing active tunnels which do route traffic on a "bad behaving router" at all?

  • Agreed with echelon
  • We have no mechanism to tell a router to delete a tunnel we created
  • See also comments in #1546
