I understand very well that there is no problem on the inbound of Cogent
from Level3.

For my not-so-bright customers I simply want traceroutes to look good when
they run one from Level3-homed site. Obviously a ~5-7 hops to us looks
really disturbing, try to explain to one of them that there is no problem.

Enough said.
