Now if we only knew how to get (for example) things to work right if the
contact would look like:
"Hi, we have an F5 load balancer, and one of your users just contacted us,
and we were wondering if it were OK for us to try to provide better service
for your user by measuring network latencies before we send the content they
asked us for...."
And I suppose we really *should* also ask all the transit AS's as well...
