Summary

We must resist the temptation of overloading BGP to solve problems other than what it was originally designed for. The Internet relies on BGP to maintain the integrity of the inter-domain routing system, and attempts to interfere with its operation will certainly have adverse effects on the overall stability of the Internet. And the complexity of an overloaded BGP unnecessarily complicates the problem it's supposed to solve.

In particular, for virtual private networks, simpler solutions can be developed to address specific problems.
