IXP Manager now has IXF exports that PeeringDB can use to cleanup stale members.

Job, 

Unless of course they are not actually on an IXP listed. Bitcanal is 
not a member of TorIX and as far as I recall, never has been. The IP 
they list in PeeringDB was never assigned to them at any point and in 
fact was used by an AS112 instance which was run by TorIX directly on 
the fabric for a time. I sent in a note to PeeringDB several years ago 
about Bitcanal claiming to be a peer when they were not and never heard 
back.. I'll resend.
