|Your assertion seems to imply that any org like mine isn't paying it's
|fair share, but we would be with the exact same setup in PA space. In
|other words, if we got space from one of our upstreams, we'd magically
|be paying our share.
More precisely, if you were using PA without deaggregating it into a global
advertisement, then you wouldn't cause others to incurr costs.
|The only way I see PI as destructive in the way you describe is for a
|PI site to be singlehomed with a default route to their upstream and an
|announcement of their AS and IP space. In that case, you need a Cisco
|2514, and you are probably not bearing your fair share of the costs of
|your route. I've already stated that I don't understand the utility of
|singlehomed PI. In the multihomed case, however, I think your
|in the quoted message is entirely incorrect.
Being multihomed does not decrease the costs associated with a global
advertisement. Certainly, it's more rational, but regardless of the
motivations, a global advertisement costs everyone the same.
