there is a misconception. IMHO a better name for "all" would be
"global". See
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.network/182279/focus=186917 for a
thread with a report of the same issue.

In short, "default" is used to initialize the settings for new devices,
and when I looked into that "all" was only used for configuring if ip
forwarding is enabled.
