It sounds like you might do well to investigate Vendor J's routers, as they can solve this in a single unit, rather than with multiple units. There are several reasons to separate Transit and peering routers, one of them being that if someone points default route at your peering router, the packets go to nowhere because that router doesn't have a full set of routes on it. Unfortunately, this has happened to a few list members and aquantances of mine so don't think this doesn't happen.
