it also works the other way around. letting clueless networks manage
multihoming with BGP
can be a bad thing for the internet in general, especially if the upstreams
do not enforce some
*discipline* on their customers in these cases. this can be as detrimental
to the customer as
having lousy upstream service.

You say "responsible cab drivers must have not one, but two taxicabs, in
order to provide service in the event of a failure. Therefore, I bought
one from Fisher-Price, and one from Hot Wheels, and I'm astounded to find
that neither provides me with the luxury which I expected." I think
