why would ya want to route lo1 to a 192.x.x. address ???
seems to me that there are to many system side processes that listen or
ocmmunicate thru access or routing that traffic to a
internal address ...doesnt seem to smart to me.

I wouldn't; I was using that as an example.  I would want to create a
second, separate loopback interface, much in the same way you can do on a
Cisco and then route traffic across both interfaces to the loopback.  All of
the addresses would be valid.
