One thing I will do at shared peering switches is to also configure static ARP or IPv6 neighbor entries in the router for my peers.  This protects against some new arrival on the switch accidentally configuring one of my peer's IP addresses on their gear and blowing up my session.  That does cause some problems when a peer does maintenance that changes their MAC address, but I notice it fairly quickly.
