There's a lot to sift through in this thread (most of all
assertions lacking evidence), but this needs to be called 
out:

Despite the cutesy neologism, filtering against the 
acceptance of big/important/private peers's ASNs from 
unplanned vectors is very common and was a standard part 
of the belt and suspenders toolkit long, long ago.*  When 
I drove 6079, I distinctly recall it coming up in 
conversations with representatives from 2828 (it might 
have been the concentric days) and others in the hallways 
at NANOG. 

Cheers,

Joe
