I'm just a country network jockey and don't understand all this stuff,
but Avi's comment is a perfect lead-in ...

What's been bothering me is that Sprint is filtering at /19 in 206/8
but just allocated me a /21 out of 206/8.  Since my largest customer
is leaning on me to multi-home, and since I view Sprint's filtering as
indicative of what others are likely to do RSN, I begged Sprint to
allocate a block the size of the smallest block they would route if I
had gotten it from another NSP.

Is it unfair to ask Sprint to make allocations based on its own
filtering policies?

When I multihome and Pennsauken is down, will Sprint's filtering cut
me off from access to other Sprint customers via my alternative path?
