Did you ask WHOIS? Looks like the /24 is Portable-Assigned to
a joint project.
I don't know that APNIC is necessarily required to make a public consultation;.
If it was from an ARIN block; ARIN wouldn't have to "ask the public either"...
the Number Resource Policy allows for /24 micro-allocations for
critical infrastructure, which exactly describes the nature of an anycasted
/24 for the service IP of a shared open DNS recursive resolver service,
and the RIR could potentially allocate from any block under their control that
were deemed most suitable for the critical infrastructure.
Then again, maybe APNIC made a consultation at their February meeting
One thing i'm sure is they wouldn't have to ask NANOG's permission.
