I'm thinking "oops."
Looking only for prefixes with the aspath " 4134 23724 23724 <end>," and
only on 2010-04-08 UTC, we see 15210 prefixes announced.
Of those, 9598 are allocated to CN, 11017 are allocated by APNIC, and
4193 are neither (LACNIC, AFRINIC, RIPE, ARIN).
The prefixes are almost sequential as well. There are some few gaps.
It ranges beginning with a prefix in 8/8 and ending with a prefix in 222/8.
There are a wide range of networks of every sort. Nations involved,
according to RIR records, include:
Prefixes Country Code

So I'm leaning towards "big oops." I'll see if we can find someone at
AS23724 to ask, and perhaps assist if needed.
