In Internet routing, there is a fundamental tussle between the end users who want control over the end-to-end paths and the Autonomous Systems (ASes) who want control over the flow of traffic through their infrastructure. To resolve this tussle and offer flexible routing control across multiple routing domains, we argue that customized route computation should be offered as a service by third-party providers. Outsourcing specialized route computation allows different path-selection mechanisms to coexist, and evolve over time.
