CERN (as an example) picks up my routing updates daily and builds its
new access filter based on mine and others routing updates.  I'm not
sure you want realtime updates to the actual routing.  In any event,
it is an improvement over the time lag of NACR updates.

You can assign as many users as you wish to control specific ASs.
Currently it checks my email address and password.  No match -
and the maintainer of the AS gets a warning mail about the attempt
to alter the routing within my AS - and I have gotten warning
e-mails already.  Adding in PGP authentication should not be too
hard if it is not done already.

So speak to the authors and get it improved.
