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.
