That would be in contradiction of the explicitly configured default
restriction which commands otherwise.

If "restrict source" had been designed-in from the beginning, perhaps
it would make sense to enable it by default with some reasonable set
of restrictions like (limited, kod, notrap).  But as a late-breaking
addition, I thought it would be wrong to implicitly add new
restrictions for each source address and change the behavior of
existing setups.
