Would somebody mind if this was represented as {1 2 5} [3 4] ?
I see it as a bad idea for bgp table / routing analysis as it
completely confuses who is #5 really peering with.

But at this time, I'd like to see you actually provide justification
as it applies to your case for why you would want to change bgp route
for routes coming from #5 in the first place?
