How so? You recognize the warning, now what?
Deliver the notice to NOC personel, via whatever means. Perhaps they'll
terminate the session. Perhaps not. Granted in warning-only mode the
session won't come back up by itself.
And how exactly is this better than a maximum-prefix clause which drops
routes instead of dropping the session?
With your proposal, by the time the warning has been tripped and the
notice delivered to the NOC the routes have probably already gone over
the limit and the cisco already dropped the BGP session.
