(Having been on both ends of this...)
If you want me to carry their traffic, yes, I need to know their address
block(s) AND the ASN appearing behind yours. I will, in turn, have to
provide that to my upstream provider(s).
NOBODY should be blindly accepting routing information from ANYONE, EVER.
That's how people appropriate address space.
