"Important" is hard to define. People tend to register in the RRs and make use of the RSes because:  It's the right thing to do to publish public policy. It's like signalling before changing lanes.  It makes life easier on yourself and the community that participates in configuring off the RRs.

Is this true? You forgot the word "exclusive". Many providers in addition to configuring off the RR also manually configure in (by hand) those who do not have registered policy in the RRs. I consider this suboptimal administrative practice but you do what you have to. And for those who only do aspath-based filtering... keep knocking on wood. |8^) -- /*====================[ Jake Khuon <[email protected]> ]======================+ | Network Statistics Engineer, NSM/Net-Eng /~ |2 () |\| ~|~ | @ |2 | | VOX: +1(408)328-4828 Fax: +1(408)328-4806 _/~ G L & B A L C E N T E R | +============[ 1154 East Arques Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94086 ]============+
