None in my mind.  

The legacy network operator was unfamiliar with actual best practice
enterprise/carrier networking policies that he thought that for BGP to work
on a two internet feed network, both internet connections have to be
delivered to the same location.  I thought since he has more insight into
Mikrotik, that he knew about a bug with Mikrotik that made the argument
true.  Feedback from NANOG list members that also run Mikrotik has proven
that there is no problem with running current rev levels of the Mikrotik
RouterOS and BGP with internet feeds at two different locations.
