Operational: Wiltel Peering with MCI problems around D.C

Anyone else (Wiltel customers especially) running into an operational issue around D.C. with partial connectivity

It would seem MCI and Wiltel around D.C. have a 'informal' peering relationship and it's been errored right now for about 39 hours with a half-duplex route announcement. This has been effecting us with some loss of connectivity that's not there when we test same sites from other ISP clouds. Since it's informal, the help desk system at one or both ands may be having problem entering a ticket w/o an account number for the circuit.

The usual channels are not producting results, and we're starting to get engineers on the lower end of the evoluationary food chain and finger pointing between wgc & mci that's not helping. Tried a pch, haven't heard yet.
