        Sort of - from here it looks like they aren't actually announcing
the supernets.

The covering /162, /15 and /14 aggregates are being globally announced, and the more specifics are being announced from the same origin AS, apparently along the same AS paths as the specifics, so its not clear that there is any form of traffic engineering or load balancing going on.

        I don't see their stuff listed in the radb, so it looks like you
have to go to the router itself to read the routes to determine what they
are announcing, then ask the appropriate registry which block they
are announcing from, aggregate the routes in that block, rinse and repeat,
aggregate the aggregated blocks, then filter.
        ..but that only works if they announce the supernets. Without that
I'm not sure what you can do that wouldn't end up biting you back. It's also
a lot of work for not too much reward as long as these messes are the
exception and not the rule.

        Plus the public hand slap is kind of amusing. But that's probably
just me.
