What happened could be:

a) they were smoking something and indeed decided to use EIGRP rather than
 BGP.

b) they were testing out 4 byte ASNs and had a software issue in their IOS

c) someone in Cisco wanted to download a new IOS and got frustrated with
their new site so he/she pulled the plug.  Kudos to that brave Cisco
employee.
