The deployment of new IP connectivity typically results in
intermittent reachability for numerous reasons that are outside the
scope of this document.  In order to aid in the debugging of these
persistent problems, this document proposes the creation of a new
Routing Policy Specification Language attribute that allows a network
to advertise an IP address that is reachable and can be used as a
target for diagnostic tests (e.g., pings).  [STANDARDS TRACK]
