Btw, RADB and RIPE problem is the fact this data bases was not designed 
to build such lists. Try to extract PREFIX list for AS-DEMOS macro from 
RIPE - it take you about 30 - 40 minutes and you should doing all 
recursions yourself. Then try to build complex filter.

RADB abd RIPE are doing good work, but they should be improved to make 
this _LIST EXTRACTION_ be easy operation (whois -h 
fast answer). And more and more people use this data bases.

And it's bad idea to have SINGLE data base. You have a chance to get new
