i suspect the OP is down the rabbit hole of what is known as
"anti-aliasing," trying to find out whether IP address A on some router
is actually on the same router as IP address B, and what AS(s) those IPs
are in.  your point is that an inter-as link may have IPs from either of
the providers.  yup.  and, because it is an INTER-as link, it does not
really belong to one or t'other.

this particular rabbit digs deep holes.  an early entrance to the burrow
is the classic from the uw crew
