what I saw by going through the diffs, etc.. that I have
available to me is that the prefix was registered to be announced

i.e., the 'error' was intended, and followed all process.
so, what i don't see is how any hacks on routing, such as delay,
history, ... will prevent this while not, at the same time, have
very undesired effects on those legitimately changing isps.
seems to me that certified validation of prefix ownership and as
path are the only real way out of these problems that does not
teach us the 42 reasons we use a *dynamic* protocol.
perhaps you mean certified validation of prefix origin
and path. Ownership of any given prefix is a dicey concept
as a start, i'd want two things for authentication and integrity
checks: AS P asserts it is the origin of prefix R and prefix R
asserts the true origin AS is P (or Q or some list). Being able
to check these assertions and being assured of the authenticity
and integrity of the answers goes a long way, at least for me.
path validation is something else and a worthwhile goal.
what am i missing here?
