The issue has been explained by a certain 'representative'
in a seperate mail. Apparently they have acquired a number
of networks amongst which they also AS4474 to/from which
they are migrating requiring the above setup.

Now let's hope that they will finish this migration soon
without problems and update the registry objects in question
so that in the future there can be no doubt about this even
when you are on the other side of the world and nothing
about such a migration is documented anywhere.
