I know for a fact that it can be done. I have had this set up with AS701
when we were a customer (>4 years ago). Everything about our set up with
them was very specific and broke a lot of their rules because of the kind of
usage we were putting on them -- they made a lot of exceptions for us. I am
sure none of the guys that were helpful then are still there now, and
moreover, I am not sure if it was because of our size that they were able to
make the exception. I am just chiming in because I know that the exception
has been made on more than one occassion for us. In fact, we have had BGP
views (EBGP-multihop) from several core routers backhauled to us at
different times, and for different reasons. This is all ancient history
