Thanks, Sebastian. 
Good study. Your convergence time estimates (e.g. Table 2, p. 38) for route servers
are interesting and also consistent with the AMS-IX study in 2012 
(the latter in realistic IXP scenarios).

But I am still interested in any pointers to 
BGP router measurements in ISP/provider edge scenarios.
