it is not a great defense, but it's some defense.  like all security
efforts, it is not a cure but raises the barrier.  i see no reason for
inter-isp peering and intra-isp ibgp to be covered fairly quickly.  i
would suggest having one's provisioning folk working with bgp customers
to close that avenue as well, starting with the more critical customers.

also, think about your igp.
