1.	I didn't code this entry, so, I didn't have any difficulty at all.
	You'll notice it is maintained by one of my ISPs, not by me.
2.	I'm not sure what your point is, but, my particular situation,
	a single entry with no policy information whatsoever is, I
	suspect an exception rather than a rule.
3.	It might interest you to know that the single AS shown in that
	entry is not necessarily a complete reflection of my connectivity,
	although that is the only one currently advertised in BGP.

In general, coding things up to get them through the RPSL parser and into
the database has, in my experience, been a frustrating exercise in trial
and error with rather esoteric response back from the parser and a lot of
time spent hunting for subtle syntax errors.
