Re: Is the export policy selective under valley-free?

Valley-free is a property of AS mesh models that says that, where edges are classified as peering (p2p) or transit (c2p) that a valid path contains zero or one peering link and that the peering link occurs adjacent to the top of the path. That is that valid paths look like,
[c2p c2p ... c2p p2p p2c ... p2c p2c]
(slightly abusing the notation for clarity)
The idea is that a small, customer AS should not provide transit between its upstreams, though this does, apparently happen sometimes.
Barring misconfigurations, I believe that AS paths are normally valley- free.
See, for example,
"Toward Valley-Free Inter-domain Routing" http://nsrc.cse.psu.edu/tech_report/NAS-TR-0054-2006.pdf
