AS690 advisory update

In theory, this would be covered by moving AS279 from the AS macro
for MCI to the AS macro for UUnet.

In current practice, because AS macros are not widely in use (and
aren't in our machine generated aut-num right now), this will have
to be coordinated among providers (like you send us a note saying
your entire AS has moved).

The idea is that this doesn't happen all that often. If it does,
the AS macro is a decent way of handling it.

So, this also goes for new ASes?
And you're saying that everyone that peers with you should start
using AS macros in addition to aut-nums to both add new ASes and
re-arrange policy for old ones.

How many AS macros are there now, in the radb, ans, and ripe RR's?
[i left out mci because i know how many there are, especially since it is a split db ;-]

Are the AS-macros only referenced recursively after parsing the
aut-num, or are they to be applied to policy independantly?

How is policy to be determined for AS5757, should someone start
announcing it tommorrow?

In other words, say this appeared in the RADB tonight:

descr: A route that can't get everywhere
origin: AS5757
mnt-by: MAINT-AS5757
changed: 951114
source: RADB

And someone, pick a provider, started announcing this to you tommorrow.
Say Sprint. Would it be accepted? And why?
