filtering out longer prefixes, and if so, does it depend on whether it;s
former class A, B, C or swamp space?  I know when I got my current block
from my upstream, I had to make sure I got swamp space, because the former
class B block they initially allocated to me wouldn't have made it past
Verio's filters at that time.
Most if not all of the /8s that get assigned to ARIN have a prescribed minimum allocation size. How rigorously that is followed is another story :-) I don't think you can specifically request that ARIN assign you space out of the swamp these days.
