Re: ix's & prefix registration

DE-CIX (http://www.de-cix.net) does (see 4.4
http://www.de-cix.net/info/DE-CIX_technical_requirements.pdf). And afaik
that's also true for LINX, AMS-IX, Xchangepoint, ... Look at their policies
as well.

DE-CIX does not monitor this. However if you are using DE-CIX's routeserver
your announcements are filtered against your policy (as path lists and ip
filter lists).
