The situation being discussed is an organization with multiple sites that *don't*
have a behind-the-scenes dedicated circuit, tunnel, or other interconnect.

For example, XYZ Corp has a POP in Tokyo announcing a /16 to their provider
there, and a POP in DC announcing a different /16 to their North American
provider, using the same ASN for both - but traffic between the two /16s
traverses the commodity Internet.

Or they advertise the same /16 and pray to the anycast gods. :)

(Actually, that's OK too, as long as both Tokyo and DC also announce a second
route (possibly a more-specific, or different address space) for their interconnect
