I agree that there is no 'right' to have a route in someone else's router.  
Different providers, different policies etc. etc.  However, if I choose 
to filter on allocation boundaries but advertise prefixes to peers that 
I myself would filter based on my own policy is that considered 
hypocritical?  Bad form?  Acceptable?  Just wondering aloud.
