NO.Even when old origin AS is not private one.

Don't you think private/pubic AS won't matter in case of provider aggregation?

When the old origin AS was a private one? Today, with 32bits AS,
everyone should have a public AS number but, in the real world, some
people do BGP with private AS that the upstream provider has to
change.
