Some policies are strange. To be honest, though, /24 is the standard 
unless you're receiving directly from your transit, and while I know 
there are quite a few networks (unfortunately some of the largest) which 
deaggregate on a massive scale, I would say that most ASNs advertise at 
the highest aggregation possible.

I'm personally sad that I'm having to start advertising 5 new /23 routes 
as 2 of my ISP customers are multihoming and aren't aggregated (IPv4 
didn't allow for any growth when I assigned to them).

Thanks for reminding me to check, though. I screwed a bgp config up. 
Currently (and never do this, I just haven't finished fixing it), I flag 
to not send routes out (instead of flagging to send them), and a screwup 
deaggregated a route.      4777 2516 3356 8025  - Withdrawn - matching aggregate 4777 2516 3356 8025

^--- errr, neighbor x.x.x.x send-communities please. :)
