BTW, private AS leaks are reported as part of the IPMA "routing problems" 
reports (http://www.merit.edu/ipma/reports/). Yes, it is based off 
route-server data; no, peering with route-servers at a given location 
does NOT mean you have to use them for exchanging routing updates. It is
in the best interest of the community for anyone at exchange points
where there is a route-server to participate. IMO not doing so indicates 
the desire to hide data, or some measure of irresponsibility; encourage
your providers and peers to supply externally-validated stability data.

Speaking of which, I have not seen any data, public or private, that WCOM
is establishing a route-server presence at MAE-E ATM. It seems customers
are going to lose a service in the MAE-E FDDI close, and all of us will
lose a data-gathering point.
