They do such things, they indeed do. Indeed, we do have multi-hop peering sessions on one of our route collectors (rrc00). That one is specifically used for multi-hop peerings. On the other collectors, placed on a specific exchange, we prefer to only have peers from that exchange, to prevent confusion. However, we can not accept unlimited numbers of peerings, especially peerings where we receive a full table, multi-hop or not. The maximum appears to be around 15 for each collector, depending on the hardware used for it. If you think we should have a peering with someone that we don't have already, perhaps multi-hop, we are interested to know (with an explanation).
