You can also do "no network" but that is not the point.

If there's a bug in the split-horizoning logic (in the RFC, not in
this particular implementation of the rfc), then all of these 
are workarounds.

I may want to have 2 links to support redundancy at layer 2,
or I may want to have interface aliases to support redundancy at layer 3,
RIP is supposed to play nicely with both solutions, without the
administrator having to cripple/disable/silence something.
