It would be a good idea to pick up on the ASnnn aliases used in the
days of the NSFnet.  The suitable place to host these aliases would
be the registries, since they are the ones handing out ASNs and are
in the position of being able to enforce a pretty obvious
requirement: Anybody injecting routes into the Net -must- have
functioning trouble email addresses.  (Some months ago, somebody
(apparently both global and international) were leaking some of our
routes.  No normal alias worked and the problem didn't get resolved
until given-name at ... came back after the weekend.)

To avoid wasted efforts, the registries should preferably coordinate
to mirror the aliases, so that everybody would be reachable as

  ASnnn at any-registry.net

Thus, all of

  AS286 at ripe.net
  AS286 at internic.net
  AS286 at apnic.net

would reach the trouble(some) folks in EUnet.

This would place an extra burden on the registries, but ASN assignment
shouldn't be taken lightly anyway.
