but isn't peer A prefix-out a synonym for peer B prefix-in, that will 
lead to the same result, e.g. a BGP teardown?

I just feel that this will add another factor, that people will not use 
or abuse: neigh $x max-out infinite

What about adding an option to the BGP session that A & B do agree on a 
fixed number of prefixes in both directions, so Bs prefix-in could be As 
prefix-out automatically?
