I am fairly sure that I have seen real-life issues with at least one

after the original masking route was withdrawn.
there is no problem with a prefix being
announced by more than one ASN.
I don't have any solid documentation or results of experiments to
support this, although it seemed very real at the time. It has always
led me to promote the conservative practice of advertising routes with
a consistent origin AS.
Bill: have you done any measurement exercises to determine whether this
is, in fact, an issue? Or was your comment above based on the protocol,
rather than deployed implementations of the protocol?
