Maybe it is finally time for combined efforts by the large commercial
carriers to shutdown the full-table "filler-feeds" they have (for
example UPC for C&W, ANC for GBLX, I guess IIJ for Tiscali, no clue who
that is for NTT). Whoever is not a downstream customer of at least one
of them isn't globally visible, period.
I'm not a big fan of the Tier-1/Tier-2 structure that might evolve out
of this, but at the moment I think paths like in my original posting are
Just my two very briefly evaluated cents, I'm not too sure this is going
to work. But something finally needs to be done about people hooking up
with 3000mi tunnels expecting global reachability.
The other option would be to kill of the known full-table leaks, e.g.
6175 17715 6435
6175 2497 3257 3549 6830 6830 12401 - argh!
6939 2497 3257 6175 - oh come on, seriously?
