On a similar note, Level3's database has many stale entries from WCGDB
which no longer exists as far as I can tell.  Does anyone have a good
contact at Level3 for removing all the entries with a source: WCGDB?
There are some of mine that I'd like to have removed.  Here is an
example of Charter's AS object:
