The RADB doesn't keep AS information for things not in the IRR. MCI
(and RIPE) takes the Internic AS allocation and massages it into
a basic aut-num (you need -a flag but it is there) so I use this as it
gives me a single point with the most AS to name mappings. I wonder who
thought doing the Internic mappic was useful ?
