Ahh, now that's another story. That is something it is reasonable
for a peer to object to. If you are going to advertise a route to a block
at one peering point, you should be advertising a route to that block at
all peering points and with the same AS length.
It is not consistent policy to route to a customer through both
another customer and a non-customer. That's what you can't do.
Alternatively, if you do decide you must accept routes to a customer from
a non-customer, you must consider those routes to be customer routes.
