It is my humble little opinion that if joe-public looked at AS paths, it may be somewhat of an ethical issue, as some companies wouldn't want to be associated with others. ( "hey, it says right here that Sprint gets it connection from the isp down the street!") However, most who see the as paths have a clue, and are smart enough to know that anyone can prepend pretty much anything thing pretty much any way they want to, so it's really not an issue.
Those that look at AS paths, and aren't cluefull enough to know the difference.... well.... does anyone really care what those people think anyway? ;-)
