OK, let's try a similar but different scenario. Customer has ISP A,

Assuming the customer told you, do you require the customer to start
their connection with you as a private AS, do you require the customer
to re-AS-number later, or do you assume the customer will re-multihome,
It is technical feasible, but I don't think 'reasonable'. Stub ASes
are pollution on the 'Net.
Is it a reasonable alternative to establish a BGP connection with the
provider over ethernet?
And what if the customer doesn't tell you that they're intending to
leave ISP A? Do you police this, and if so how regularly?
(And yes, Patrick, IKYNAI. We'll pretend for the moment.)
