Regardless of all the other comments here making fun of the request, I 
can somewhat understand why they might do this. Some of the requests I 
have gotten from customers are so misguided and confusing that a simple 
diagram can go far to clear things up. I know it seems crazy to everyone 
here that can set up BGP peering in their sleep, but when you're getting 
a new request from someone who hasn't gotten an ASN yet, and has never 
heard of a routing registry? All they know is a consultant told them 
they needed to "do BGP" with their ISP?
