correct.  Only since the original RFC 3041 didn't bother to provide an
API for applications to choose between temporary and public addresses,
most implementations provide a system-wide setting---BTW, do we have
an API specification for that by now?

Aside from that, I'm definitely not advocating the Microsoft approach
here, my intention was only to point out a fact relevant to the
blacklisting issue.
