Which is nice. I just duplicated an ARIN entry in raddb using my 
maintainer with all other information the same. Since Level 3 pulls 
based on my as-set + my maintainer list, my entry automatically updates 
their acl list. Does this mean I can't lie? No. However, IRR's aren't 
designed to top lying. they are designed to help in management and 
tracking issues.
