A BGP speaker may originate BGP routes by injecting routing information acquired by some other means (e.g. via an IGP) into BGP. A BGP speaker that originates BGP routes shall assign the degree of preference to these routes by passing them through the Decision Process (see Section 9.1). These routes may also be distributed to other BGP speakers within the local AS as part of the Internal update process (see Section 9.2.1). The decision whether to distribute non- BGP acquired routes within an AS via BGP or not depends on the environment within the AS (e.g. type of IGP) and should be controlled via configuration.
