Interesting.

Actually, RA route servers can handle this situation as we speak. RA
RSs maintain a view per peer. In the view for Alternet, one would
install the route from PSI and would not install the routes from
Sprint and MCI. (In the view for sprint, install MCI's route and do
not install Alternet's and PSI's, etc.)

Of course, we need policies to do this.
