Well yeah, the post wasn't terribly helpful as it stood, but OTOH, it
would certainly be helpful to have a 'model' client/peering agreement
that includes some sort of reasonable standard for what kind of traffic
should be filtered on ingress & egress.

The only one I've seen thus far are the guidelines in Cisco's
white-paper for ISPs, which (while extremely helpful) seem a little out
of date these days.

Is anyone interested in helping come up with some sort of standard
model, or at least a set of guidelines? Or do people think such a thing
would be unneccessary?
