Pardon me if this is a dumb question, but will the global networks honour
this "suspension"? Suppose RIPE decides to suspend my personal netblock.
Unless Demon does something, I'm not even going to notice. The packets will
still get to me. So now suppose that RIPE suspends Demon. What happens?
Will the whole world really stop peering with us or transiting our traffic?
I don't think so. What if our AS includes assignments from more than one
RIR? Just how will our peers suspend only the RIPE addresses?
