Of course not because their neighbors are allowing it to 
pass; so as with all hijacks, deaggregation, and other 
unfiltered noise, the only care is traffic going in and 
out. QA (let alone automated sanity checks) are alien
concepts to many, and "well it works" is the answer from 
some when contacted.  

It smells like this is as PF surmises and might just be 
folks amenable to fixing it when contacted. We'll see...
