No reason to feed fake routes to route collectors.

Some BGP players (ASN Operator) like that, and make the AS number one in

Maybe someone knows bgp.tools, they also run route collectors but rejected
AS Number which joined LL-IX <https://www.peeringdb.com/ix/2343>.
(This IXP removes the as-path and feeds to their rs client.)

I'm not targeting anyone, but feed fake route has no benefit, just vanity ;(
