         ___T1 to Verio, With BGP____Verio______
        /                                       \
Customer                                         UUnet
        \                                       /
         ---T1 to Sprint, No BGP-----Sprint-----

Now, the customer, over their two T1 transit circuits does the

as-path access-list 1 deny .*

neighbor verio filter-list 1 in

ip route sprint

Should the customer have to register a route with Sprint to make
this work?  How does UUNet, who only received a route from Verio,
know incoming packets from Sprint aren't spoofed?  Note also, even
if these cases are in the IRR, UUNet's filter for Sprint will be
larger than the number of routes currently received, since there is
no route for this prefix that needs to be in the filter.

[Note, I don't suggest this configuration is common or useful on
its own, but rather it's a simple enough case it can be used for
discussion in e-mail.]
