i'd guess neither vendor would have problems with this.  however, several 
routing protocols have problems with secondary addresses.  while BGP does not, 
folks are likely doing other "interesting" things at exchanges that this would 
effect.  not to mention administrative overhead with adding new secondary 
address and such when adding additional peers.

not particularly.  i'd think for the price of local loop, co-location and port 
fees, they'd be able to pick up the tab for the subnet...

yet another reason to avoid public exchanges altogether, i suppose.
