Bzzzt! Time to try again! :-)
It's for non-broadcast-capable interfaces, like tunnels (built with
iproute2, openvpn or other tools), or point-to-point interfaces (built
with ppp, HDLC or other serial-type protocols). What distinguishes all
these interfaces is that there can only be _two_ nodes on the "network",
so there is a _peer_ relationship between the two nodes, and both nodes
have to be told the two IP addresses (their end, and the peer's end).
