Would you consider not deaggregating your prefixes part of basic routing
hygiene? I do. :-) I can understand that if a network has two different
locations, with no backbone, that split up their space in two. But all
to often I see networks announcing both more specific and covering
aggregate, with only one endpoint, so the more specifics just waste

Maybe a strong recommendation can be put in the code that a participant
promises to keep peeringdb.com up2date?

Here too peeringdb often plays a vital role in contacting the other
party to cooperate to resolve an issue.

5. Enabling others in debugging efforts

Maybe this falls under under one of the four other subjects, but I
desperatly want networks to offer looking glasses from multiple points
in their network, for both IPv4 and IPv6 with BGP, ping and traceroute,
without a captcha, without a members login :-)

1 or 3 is fine by me. I envision slapping networks with the code when
they publicly endorse it but don't abide by it. One of the strongest
drivers in this industry is the fear for name and shame I suppose, we
all want to act like well educated boys because everything is visible.

Kind regards,
