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?
