Explicit-path's modes

Hello everyone,

 

I have a question about Loose/Strict/Ipv4 modes of next-hop in explicit-path configuration.

I've understood what is a Loose/Strict, but what is the difference between them and simple "index 1 next-address ipv4 unicast x.x.x.x" statement?

 

And the second question.

If we have several different pseudowires that used the same explicit-path with combined "strict" and "loose" modes, will they balance a traffic on a non-strict part of the route? Suppose that this part contains a several equal routes.

 

For instance:

R1-R2----several equal routes in routing table to R3-----R3--R4.

We need to strictly define R1-R2, R3-R4 links, but not the R2-R3.
