Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a synchronization issue here
as well? E.g.: AS2 is transit provider, probably has bgp synchronization
on (default), and will only propagate routes to other AS's that have
made it into their IGP. The question then is: have all 3 routes made
it into AS2's IGP successfully? Only if the answer is yes, will it
actually propagate that /16.
