This seems to suggest that you are just picking ASns at random to inject

In which case please keep AS8330, AS8550, and AS8943 out of your
Using not yet allocated ASns out of RIPEs asn-blocks would have been
more sensible, IMHO.
we are not picking ASes at random. The AS-set announcements are part of
new techniques we are developing for ISPs who wish to discover how their
prefixes are seen by the rest of the Internet. We believe this will come
to be a useful tool for operators.
However, since this is still work in progress, and in scientific
research there is no room for second place, I can't really reveal any
more than that at the moment.
I would like to point out, though, that our research group does have a
proven track record in the field network discovery (examples available
on request), and has created software useful to the operator community
such as BGPlay .
That said, if you want us to exclude those ASes from our AS-sets, then
we will do so.
