Re: 16-bit ASN kludge
The proposal was that transit ASNs would begin with 12 leading 0 bits and non-transit ASNs would not. As such, 1312 would not be a non-transit ASN. The proposal wasn't for "parallel" ASN space. The proposal was to have a range of ASNs for leaf-networks and a range for transit networks, allowing transit networks to make more rational (possibly automated) decisions about route aggregation.

If somebody is using '1312' inside their parallel ASN space and accidentally leaks it, it's a bit harder to diagnose. And if somebody is leaking 1312, I'll be quite put out... ;)
