That is the RIPE Meeting AS apparently, which is not used at the moment.
This was mentioned in todays mail (not in the original one).

According to whois though, I hope that you enlightened Geoff of taking
over his AS:
aut-num:      AS1221
as-name:      ASN-TELSTRA
descr:        Telstra Pty Ltd

I also do hope that people are not going to filter out 1221 btw as that
would sever connectivity of that AS when it is needed.

Another thing to note is that neither of those two AS's have any
reference to these experiments in whois.

aut-num:      AS12654
as-name:      RIPE-NCC-RIS-AS
descr:        RIPE NCC RIS Project.
descr:        http://www.ripe.net/ris/
admin-c:      HU266-RIPE
tech-c:       RISM-RIPE
remarks:      Different subsets of the routes in AS12654:RS-RIS are
announced
remarks:      at each location.
remarks:      Please send peering requests to rispeering@ripe.net.
mnt-by:       RIPE-NCC-RIS-MNT
source:       RIPE # Filtered

It would be nice to list it there too as mentioned before, not everybody
reads the various mailinglists and there is no mention on that site
either....

Greets,
 Jeroen
