How about doing the following:

By default, insert RS's AS in the path unless otherwise requested by the peer?

There is a RS peer request template which might be a good place to allow
new peers to specify if they want the AS inserted or not.

Please re-insert the RS's AS for the RS peer session with AS690 for now.

Some of you may have noticed that the RSes have stopped injecting their ASN
into the ASPath expression.  This was a feature I have just recently turned
on to meet the original design goals of the project.   As per specification,
the RSes were to be transparent in its operation.

I realise I may have erred by doing this without asking the community first. 
Therefore, I would like to take a poll as to what everyone prefers.  I can
turn the ASN injection back on in a peer-by-peer basis if necessary.  I
sincerely apologise if this has caused any confusions and/or problems.
