Valley-free is a property of AS mesh models that says that, where edges
are classified as peering (p2p) or transit (c2p) that a valid path
contains zero or one peering link and that the peering link occurs
adjacent to the top of the path. That is that valid paths look like,
[c2p c2p ... c2p p2p p2c ... p2c p2c]
(slightly abusing the notation for clarity)
The idea is that a small, customer AS should not provide transit between
its upstreams, though this does, apparently happen sometimes.
Barring misconfigurations, I believe that AS paths are normally valley-
