Bork Bork Bork?

So Tony Bates sends out the CIDR report as usual...222.222.222.0 possibly 
a bogus route...so I check out RADB...BORK BORK BORK...huh?


route:       192.0.0.0/2
descr:       QUARTER-DEFAULT-ONE
descr:       The Reasonable Default Route Project
descr:       This prefix is one of three which is designed
descr:       to accomplish several things.   Firstly, ICM
descr:       will be offering a set of robust and hardened
descr:       default-oriented prefixes which will be made
descr:       reliably available to some of AS1800's peers and
descr:       things downstream from them.  The routing announcements
descr:       will be supplemented with a box that sends back
descr:       appropriate ICMP messages; at some point we will
descr:       also make a view of the default-announcing box's
descr:       knowledge of global routing available to folks
descr:       who wish to accept the default announcement.
descr:       Secondly, this announcement is designed to assist
descr:       ANS in the transition away from advisories.  We expect
descr:       that this will allow people to send in far fewer
descr:       advisory updates than is done currently, without
descr:       breaking reachability between ANS's customers and
descr:       the rest of the world.   This is good for both ANS
descr:       and everyone else.

descr:       Thirdly, ICM will be running some experiments on
descr:       sheer amount of traffic that follows an ultimate
descr:       default, although this must be done without
descr:       examining that traffic for content without explicit
descr:       permission from the originator.  We expect that this
descr:       will help serve as a tool to identify and correct
descr:       problems in the global routing system.
