  Please explain this.  I do not think that strict filtering of routes 
necessarily detracts from sustained connectivity.  While it may decrease the
elasticity of the net, and it may delay the time for new networks to be
connected, properly thought out routing policies can properly effect sturdy,
efficient networks.

  Yes, actually, I would.  It comforts me to know that there are two more
hurdles placed in network X's way so that our routes can not be spoofed across
the world.

  By filtering the routes that an ISP allows they are less than a full ISP?!!?
