Oh, sorry.
I took the phrase routed subnets from an earlier post to mean that the openvpn config had a line like
route A/24
in multiple configs -- so that the subnets were securely accessible from multiple places.

Because if networks A and B have overlapping ranges of IP address in a
setup like [A--B--C--D], how does the B router know which "direction" to
send packets to - down towards A or towards B? IOW, the routing breaks.
