It's often considered a Good Thing to not hear the networks of exchange
points from peers/others. A conservative approach is to filter out 
announcements of EPs to which you are actually connected rather than all
you can find; some folks just squash 198.32/16 and any other addresses
they can find.

It is worth noting that none of 198.32.2/24, 198.32.4/24 or 198.32/16 
have IRR entries; that might adversely affect reachability in defaultless
IRR-strict networks.

Cheers,

Joe
