This is simply not true!
The view was always that you got a location or a locationURI prior to
tunnel establishment, if you have a location aware client. So I simply
don't see your argument here. The split tunneling issue has nothing
whatsoever to do with HELD, it is imply a statement that local traffic
should be kept, where possible, local. 

There are several other concerns I have with your arguments to Martin's
response, and we will get to those later today.
