Perhaps I was not clear. If I (NSP to the world) claim the be cidr capable
and willing to accept & transit cidr routes, what basis do I have to
restrict my clients from sending me aggregated routes? If I follow the
advice given above, (from a number of folks), then I am capricious in
acceptance of stated policy. Merit/ANS should accept my NACR for route
addition/removal as long as it affects nets that are verifiably mine.
Sprint, Alternet, and Ebone are in the same boat (I think).
Can any of us arbitrarily deny our clients? I think not. If I choose to
have Merit/ANS remove more specific routes, I think they are obligated to
do so. Is this true? That way, -I- am responsible, not my provider.
