I would say networks are not discrete if they  _ARE_ announced as an aggregate.
Networks that are not announced as an aggregate but could be are still discrete.

The question to the operator should be in that case...  do you have a
compelling reason that they are not announced  as an aggregate?

If the networks are not interconnected,   then  that would be a reason
they should not be announced as an aggregate.    The  operator  should
then have a compelling reason that they haven't built a tunnel or
interconnected the  two networks.

If purchasing an additional link to connect the two networks is an
option, perhaps they should be denied the option of utilizing the MDN
