not to justify the expense, but perhaps covad is renumbering from one
block to another? Looking at their advertisments I see lots of /23 or /24
blocks inside their larger covering routes... So either they deaggregated
to renumber more gracefully, or they forgot their prefix-list outbound to
williams and exodus ?

perhaps covad can explain? or silently cover up the 'mistake' (which is
acceptable as well...)
