question about bgp incremental updates

Hi everyone,

I have a question about bgp updates:

BGP uses an incremental update strategy to conserve bandwidth and 
processing power.  That is, after initial exchange of complete routing 
information, a pair of BGP routers exchanges only the changes to that 
information. ( from RFC4274)

According to this principle, if an AS suddenly announced a lot of 
updates (as below), can it be regarded as an anomaly such as BGP session 
reset? I wish to know if there are other reasons can result in this anomaly.

Thanks!
