Odd BGP AS Path

Hi all,

Probably a silly question, but can anyone explain to me this:
3561 3356 9031 {35821,35821,35821,35821} i

To explain it a bit better, I'm looking at real routing information
from routeviews (#3).

According to RFC 4271 ( Aggregating Routing Information):
> For the purpose of aggregating AS_PATH attributes, we model
> each AS within the AS_PATH attribute as a tuple <type, value>,
> where "type" identifies a type of the path segment the AS
> belongs to (e.g., AS_SEQUENCE, AS_SET), and "value" identifies
> the AS number.
> ...
> No tuple of type AS_SET with the same value SHALL appear
> more than once in the aggregated AS_PATH.

Am I misreading things, or is this path information out of spec?
