Yes, most providers whose customers request a particular route to be pointed towards them will ask for ambiguous instructions, written on letterhead with crayon, and signed illegibly by someone who may or may not have authority to do so but who in any case cannot be identified clearly by their scrawl.

Ideally the letterhead should be crudely constructed in photoshop and then faxed across a noisy analogue line.

Once you have one of those babies in your file, no lawyer can touch you.
