Once interfaces are mapped with IS, you just route to the internal
interface.  Events sent to the interface will be reflected in the
PROTO's (IS'd) interface.

Are you concerned about creating routes to/from nodes outside the PROTO
from/to nodes inside the PROTO definition?  Off the top of my head, I
can't think of why there would be a problem with that.
