As Jared noted, this was more of a common thing back-in-the-day.

For properly operating proxy aggregation, you'd generally hope that all
contributing networks were properly behind the aggregating party.  However,
as the Internet has gotten more meshy, those topological considerations
don't apply anywhere near as much.

As this torches and pitch-forks campaign against as-set continues, operators
will have to figure out whether they're really happy with the two impacts:
- No proxy aggregation, ever?
- Lie about the AS_PATH when you do it.

Today you can at least infer that proxy aggregation is happening.

The second point has entertaining impact vs. RPKI, so that's the likely
forcing function.

It's a fine policy knob, and I'm more supportive of that in general.
