Well, how about injecting real production CIDR routes? :-)

Ok, I've already broken this rule, and the roof didn't cave in, but as the
people on the bgpd list saw it resulted in a connectivity problem.

As soon as you-know-who (at least those on the bgpd list know) gives me an
"ok" that they're ready (sometime this weekend), I will again withdraw the
129.241/16 route from the Internet, and instead rely on the 129.240/15
announcement.  A host to try to ping could be eg.  Problem
reports to me (yes, I've made sure your e-mail will reach me irrespective
of connecitivity problems for this specific network).
