I can understand wanting to diagram a complex design, so everyone involved 
has a clear picture of what needs to happen, but for an ISP to bring up 
BGP to a customer?  If that's not something that can be done in a 
relatively cookie-cutter fashion, there is something horribly broken with 
that ISP.

My diagram would be something along the lines of

your_router --------[GIG-E WITH BGP]-------- my_router = :)

your_router --------[GIG-E WITH NO BGP]-------- my_router = :(
