I don't wish to express an opinon regarding the correct behaviour, but
from RFC1812 5.3.9 Packet Filtering and Access Lists we have:
"The router MUST allow packets to be silently discarded (i.e.,
discarded without an ICMP error message being sent)."
does this not explicting require routers to support dropping of packets?
