full disclosure, no problem.  I've never personally seen a sales rep go in
and disclose something like this, and the original message was worded in
such a way ("[my] upper management has proposed that I route company X's
Internet traffic via a specific NSP ..") that did not indicate the customer
had any idea what was being proposed.
