| Whether or not they announce non-(Sprint)-customer routes, such as AS1?

But Alex, you know that many providers would be delighted to
filter out peers' routes on your behalf, as well as not announce
you to their peers.  Yet they still charge you money, no?

One might consider the wonderful old days when UKERNA and DANTE
asked ICM to stop announcing to them a large swathe of routes for
various reasons.

This raises an interesting diagnostic issue which some people
run into from time to time when hunting down weird routing problems:
how can a third party know what is being announced and
thrown away (or just not selected), versus what is not being
announced at all?
