This proposal suggests restricting APNIC members from creating ROAs with private, reserved, or unallocated ASN. This will help APNIC members avoid mistakenly creating unnecessary Bogon ROAs.

APNIC notes the proposed restriction of creating ROAs with any unallocated, private and reserved ASNs,
to stop Members creating bogon ROAs in the global routing table.
This proposal would require changes to the website content, procedure documents, training material,
and registry systems.
If this proposal reaches consensus, implementation may be completed within 3-6 months.
1. Since the route management interface in MyAPNIC (Member Portal) permits Members to create both route objects and ROAs with arbitrary ASNs, should this proposal be extended to include restricting of AS-ID in route objects as well?
2. Does this proposal requires the deletion of all existing ROAs referencing unallocated, private, and reserved ASNs?
