I hear you guys, It's done that way for a bit of traffic steering.

If I could get away with just the aggregates I would, Trust me.

Please, unless you really know why you need to do otherwise, just
originate your aggregates.


That should be unnessecary, the local prefs should already be winning as a
customer vs transit/peer for equal prefix length.

As an aside, generally inbound traffic steering as a reason for
disaggregation is fairly frowned upon by the community at large as it
effectively makes everyone else pay more in additional hardware cost for
your savings.
