I seriously doubt L3 would have to do anything but revert to the last known good configuration.

If Cogent has done anything to those BGP configurations, they're not only being silly, but they are being disingenuous, since they said they left the configs in place.

Of course, that only gets the bits flowing, it doesn't solve the underlying issue.
