This did get resolved on the carrier side - thank to all who pointed me 
towards documentation and suggestions.  The Metaswitch has an option 
"Caller Number Connected Line ID Screening" which was set to "owned".  
Changing this to "valid format" allowed my asterisk instances to send 
foreign caller ID information and it was accepted.
