Opinions seem divided on this topic - some ISPs will let you do it, others
don't. I've never heard of anyone that'd had any real operational
difficuties once they've convinced the ISPs concerned to do this however.

The limitations, as far as I'm aware, are with BGP support tools and
technologies like RIPE-181/RADB rather than BGP itself.
