Blargh sabotages Foo...

This drama has reminded me of something I had been meaning to ask "the 
community" for a while now.  If InterNetBlargh has customer FooCo and 
breaks things badly, it is fairly obvious that they both should have 
their respective suits and legals hash things out over existing contracts.

But if InterNetBlargh mangles one/more routes [by virtue of, say, a 
shorter AS path] for *non-customer* BazNet, without regard for WHOIS/RA 
data, currently-visible announcements, registered servers, etc., what 
sort of recourse is considered a Good Thing?  Let's face it, typos happen, 
even at major transit providers, but that means squat when your /16 goes 
*poof*.  Airing it as a made-for-mailinglist miniseries is just a waste 
of everyone's time.  What sort of action would any propose to BazNet?  
Send email and I'll summarize.
