I would think it practical to take one info from aut-num, and that
is which as-set a given peer AS wants to announce to oneself.

Also, a 'lint' functionality that tells one if one's own RPSL objects
are sane is sometimes helpful, especially if it produces verbose output
to hit the guilty party over the head with. :) (Even just checking if
for any given import statement with as-set if the AS supposed to be
announcing it is contained within, and if both exist, would prevent
many stupid errors; also checking if the AS exports that as-set to
oneself would be even better).
