That's correct. !X is "Communications Administratively Prohibited" meaing
they've got an ACL in place that explicitly denies access to the next hop in
the trace. I can trace to that point and then my trace dies with simple
timeouts instead of "prohibited". To me, that usually means that a firewall
is active that is denying udp and icmp also.

I'm not sure what Zen will be able to do as long as they're advertising that
they're responsible for the network block that you've been assigned to.
Although, they may be willing to contact the network powers that be for the
networks that you can't traverse through due to lack of action on their
part. Then again, it is the remote networks perogative to allow or disallow
the traffic.
