This is the kind of collision that makes this "standard" expensive to
implement. Folks elsewhere use ROUTING as a way to reach the folks
who want to hear about externally visible routing problems; NETCOM
for example advertises this address in its RADB elements. I think
that folks like UUNET and ESNET will have to pick new addresses if
they don't want their engineers getting spammed. Sorry about that.
