not using import/export lines in their RS or router configs, for 
starters.  Probably you could count the number of IXPs that inspect 
import/export lines on the fingers of one hand, and possibly of one finger.

Generally speaking, IXPs try to aim for filters based on a single 
{as-set,IRRDB set} tuple per RS client configured.  If you're aiming for 
bilat bgp sessions, then this functionality would need to be replicated. 
Nearly 30 years on, this is still the state of the art.
