Our new ISP is asking that I create a maintainer object in the RADB

This is the first time I've been asked by a provider to do this for
something as simple as peering to advertise a couple /24's.
I've peered with ATT, Sprint, UUnet, Qwest, Savvis, SBC, and Internap
in the past and never had to do anything but have a valid ASN provided
Hey, wait a minute! You've peered with SBCIS and not set up an
aut-num and route objects in the RADB? For shame! That's our policy,
too. Get with it!
Is this just so they can dynamically build their prefix/as-path lists?
It's to avoid having Sprint mocked by L3.
Why would I need to do this and what advantages are there. Cost to
register with RADB is $250/year and I want to understand it before I
Use ARIN's IRR or AltDB, then. But wouldn't it be nice to support the
RADB, and our good friends at Merit? Heck, you could donate a few grand
-- I'm sure they'd accept it.
