I don't think my level of understanding has any impact of my ability to 
override what the zone publisher sets the desired TTL (or any value) to be.

I have the right to run my network the way that I want to, even in my 
ignorance or while shooting myself in the foot.

Again, by choosing to do something, as questionable as it may be, I am 
also choosing the responsibility for the outcome, for better or for worse.
