RFC 1122 (IPv4 Hosts), 1700 (Assigned Numbers), 1812 (IPv4 Routers) :
       (g)   {127, <any>}

          Internal host loopback address.  Should never appear outside
          a host.

RFC 3330 (Special IPv4 Addresses) : - This block is assigned for use as the Internet host 
loopback address. A datagram sent by a higher level protocol to an 
address anywhere within this block should loop back inside the host. 
This is ordinarily implemented using only for loopback, but 
no addresses within this block should ever appear on any network anywhere.

> Solaris, and probably a lot of other OS, will route everything on
> 127./8 except via the default route.
