Anyone else seeing "(invalid or corrupt AS path) 3 bytes E01100" ?

It will still be a while before we see unbroken 4byte AS behavior 
(that whole 'fix the teardown on a anyone sneezing' problem). But
like with stale bogon filters, I expect folks inclined to use this
to drop it in and forget about it.  So it would be wise to adjust 
the recommended filter to anticipate a 2byteAS view allowing multiple 
instances of AS-TRANS; there's likely a more elegant approach, but 
the quick step of explicitly allowing _(23465_)+ before you deny
