Core routing table is not split by input and output, merely the dst
construction and surrounding lookup and policy checks are seperated for input
and output.

Output does not have to deal with source address validation e.g. but has to do
source address selection.

Quite hard to answer, I guess the design emerged quite naturally. ;)
