not quite.  if ntt and l3 told fiber@home "on or befofe next jan 1st,
have draft-ymbk-idr-bgp-open-policy enabled," (as they do with route:
object reg); beyond that, l3, ntt, and fiber@home need to do no more.
it's all in the open.  the leak does not happen.

imiho, the other draft with the transitive eOTR attribute
(draft-ymbk-idr-bgp-eotr-policy) is not needed.  it is a way to diagnose
at a distance, and i prefer to stop at the source.
