FYI, this is dangerous.
For example -
You have a customer A who has a customer B.
B is multi-homed to A and 701.
B's link to A goes down.
So, if A's network is broken, they will send you a given prefix
with as-path ^701 B$ or ^1239 701 B$ or ..., depending on how B
And you will transit it.
Shouldn't cause any major damage, but something to be aware of.
