According to the doc, it relies on RADB for its info, so it *might* not be
as accurate as an actual BGP feed.
I'm certain in many cases it isn't. Since many OPs dont'e ven know about RADB, and RADB charges for ability to register and update. How much? $250/yr. That's buried on their 'about' page. Why? I don't know, terrible site design though. Who goes into an 'about' page looking for billing information or fee schedules or price lists.
