ok.  i gotta ask.  how does a peering point even *have* routes, let alone
blow them into chunks all over the net?

Well, it has its own routes (for the shared subnet), which tends to exist 
in its own AS (for route collector purposes). If the peering point also 
has some internal infrastructure for management purposes, they may well be 
running an IGP. They will then want transit for this internal 
infrastructure.

It doesn't take must misconfiguration to cause problems :)
