learn from you in case it's strict uRPF, but not pass those
announcements along to preserve your current inbound policy as much as

That will (in theory) let you advertise all your prefixes to
SprintLink with minimal change to traffic flow, and if your
dropped-traffic problem goes away then you'll have a good supporting
