Alpha test of MAE filtering capability

i, for one didn't understand the request.

hypothetically, if mci enters into
an agreement with MAE E/W to allow a list of mac header addresses
to have access to our port on a gigaswitch, what reason is there
for MAE E/W to share that list with anyone else? if there is no
peering arrangement between two networks you could assume that the
the mac header of one network's interface isn't on the list, right?

I think what would be equally as useful (and would not disclose
peering arrangements) is a list of ports that have filtering in place
(this assumes that everyone will not be filtering, which is not
necessarily a good assumption). That way, if an ops person cannot
access a port, she/he can check if filtering is active and go from
