there are some subtle differences between the above and my previous:

note, for example, that your semantic does not announce the fine-grained
routes (aka rubbish:-) Upstream has heard from you to Upstream's's bgp-
speaking customers (Downstreams?), who i presume are mult-homed.
and note that my second suggestion

allows conservative/protectionist/... peers and multi-homed downstreams
to achieve a similar result while waiting for a DO-NOT-EXPORT-TO-PEERS
community to be deployed.
