Sorry for the confusion, I should have said "for non-customers of L3".

I was responding the statement that the name servers were controlled by "*one* external route".  If you are a customer, IGP matters, not BGP, and SLAs obviously are a different situation.  For people who are not customers, SLAs are unusual.
