The he.net side is interesting as you can see who their v4 transits are but they suppress their routes via v6, but (last I knew) lacked community support for their customers to do similar route suppression.
I’m not a fan of it, but it makes the commercial discussions much easier each time those networks come by to shop services to me in a personal or professional capacity. “No, I need all the internet”.
