	anyone can multihome, with the cooperation of others.
	current practice seems to dictate that the standard 
	operating procedures to protect the integrity of
	the routing system mandate that only prefixes of 
	certain lengths are allowed at -SOME- isp boundaries.

	you seem to have the assumption that there is a single
	standard here.  There is not.
