A big fail to our community, for up to this day, not 
implementing basic routing and forwarding filters that would 
do away with all this cruft in the first place.

Clearly the Youtube/Pakistan/PCCW incident has long been 
forgotten.

I know of folks in charge of BGP enabled networks (with downstream BGP 
customers as well) that have never heard of the Youtube/Pakistan/PCCW 
incident and don't care if they put extra routes in the table and I 
doubt that is an isolated situation.  Further, I doubt it will change 
unless they're forced to care by technology somehow.  An unfortunate 
situation for sure...
