Let me just say I think the RR has some good uses, i.e.
finding out what people intended the routing to look like, etc.

I don't really understand how a RR can help with proxy aggregation
seeing as the route objects really only provide origin AS
and regular aggregation.  

It seems to me dual homed sites which are the concence of
proxy aggregation, can be detected with a reasonably full set
of routes, i.e. the second from AS from the origin in the ASPATH
being different.  (Or some split in the path outside of an
AS communinity or confederation).

But I don't fully understand all the details of this, so I'm
sure someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
