If you are not single-homed, you have no issues reaching Cogent even
during a "peering war" - unless Cogent depeers / gets depeered from -
both- (all) of your upstreams at the same time. So what value is
there to add Cogent?
If you are not single-homed, then reaching Cogent is not even close to
your only problem.
