One has to wonder how many places are using the prepend-me-harder
commands to do traffic engineering, and have absolutely no clue that
their prepends are having the opposite effect because the prefix is
being dropped entirely by some AS's.
------------------------------------------

Do you think (or is there evidence) that very many ASs use maxas-limit type commands?  I have never used it and never had any problems...



--------------------------------------
I suppose the exact same issue applies for those places that deaggregate
in an attempt to to TE, and the de-aggregated prefixes get munched by
somebody's prefix-length filter.
------------------------------------

Only if they're longer than a /24, though; yes?  I imagine no one really filters shorter than a /24 these days.
