And... is the as-set object supposed to be unique or > not? Currently RIPE whoisd server doesn't mirror RADB. The reason for this is that RADB is a RPSL database while the RIPE one is not (yet). However mirroring a database does not mean that integrity, auth, etc. checks are performed across the databases. That's why, though according to RPSL as-set attribute is a class key and should be unique, the query result contains 3 objects (but all from different databases/sources).
