Let us imagine a pNLA site with two tunnels to pTLAs. When the main link (main
in a sense that most machines have IP numbers from this site) fails there is no
way to reach this pNLA site from anywhere else except second pTLA networks (if
the agreement provides). The solutions could be:
- allow to send /32 between pTLAs
- become a pTLA
- have a tunnel to every pTLA
- have double (triple, quadruple, ...) IP numbers (?)
are there any better ideas?

What is the reason of not propagating > /24 prefixes and how to setup backup
links not being pTLA?
