So, you're in the "traceroute is not important" camp?
(you'll note that in my email I did ask whether we think 
traceroute is important)

Really?   How?   Remember, we're not talking about RFC1918 space,
where there is a BCP that says we should filter it at the edge.
We're talking about public IP space, that just doesn't happen to be
announced outside of a particular AS.

Thanks,
