Subject: AT&T and having two BGP peers

We are getting an Ethernet DIA circuit from AT&T but they insist that
they can't BGP peer with 2 routers on our side.  The WAN circuit can
only have /30 they say.  Has anyone been able to successfully talk
them in to bending their rule?  If so, how?

I know this should have been negotiated before signing a contract but
I was unfortunately not in the loop... :(

It seems like a ridiculous bureaucratic restriction.
