In case you are worried about folks who filter, recall that the IRR
uniqueeness is based upon the Prefix/length, originAS, and sourceDB 
tuple.  There is nothing wrong with registering the origin as it is
parallel to the origin-as-it-will be.  If *you* do it, instead of 
your provider, you will not have to co-ordinate with anyone to yank
the old one.  Purposeful overlapping for the purposes of transition
is one of the features.

Cheers,

Joe
