I will be rolling back transparency status of the RS to all peers with
exception of those who have responded saying they like not seeing the RS's
AS in the ASPath.  I will turn on transparency in the future for anyone who
wishes it.  Simply send me a request.

Additionally, I've updated the peering request template
(http://www.ra.net/.peering.template.html) allowing you to
specify whether or not you wish to have the RS peer transparently.
