Whether one uses RPSL/IRR or not ...

... does not necessarily have any bearing on how routers are
configured. I have tools that are capable of integrating policy
information from RADB (using peval; I don't use RtConfig) or from
private databases (updated privately with the peer who has requested
to share their policy that way) and turning that information into the
right vendor-specific statement of policy. The process of "uploading"
policy changes is also automatic. At no time are configuration
statements entered at a router's CLI prompt.
