I've fixed this by throwing their own policies back at them.  Point out 
to them that the route is already appearing globally through your AS, 
and remind them that their policy, section 3b, already allows that.  :)

On the previous topic, I'd have to say that their two-peer system is 
perhaps one of the better, if not best, multihop implementations I've 
seen.  Amongst other things, it tends to provide a rapid assessment of 
"life in the POP".  I just wish they'd use their network status messages 
  to reflect when they were having problems, instead of just problems 
that are too large for the call center to handle.  :(
