Two refused.  One simply said they don't support.  The other with
reasoning that it was dumb and unnecessary with point-to-point links
(ATM PVCs).

a bit light on the clue, eh?

Two organization said they don't support TCP MD5 authentication, but
they'll do BGP password.  Now when I ask I put a 'aka BGP password' in
parentheses after I use the words 'TCP MD5 authentication'.

hey, they may never have seen more than one vendor in their lives, but at
least they're trying.

The most common means of exchanging a password was over the phone. 
Second most common way was via PGP encrypted email.  One organization
sent a password in plain text email.

i'll settle
