      It will not necessarily saturate. It all depends on how Miguel choose to 
      set things up.
      Yes, Miguel you will need to do some crash courses on BGP. If you wish we 
      can take this off line and work though some load balancing issues and 
      options. Or we can discuss it publicly - your choose. Your in a better 
      position then some cause your proxy/caches allow you to do load balancing 
      at the application level.
      As to your original question about APNIC's IRR database, it is not yet 
      linked to any other database. There is some work behind the scenes to make 
      this happen. For now, you will need to keep a place marker object in 
      APNIC's database, but use the MCI database as the master. The MCI objects 
      will be mirrors over to RADB, RIPE, and other link IRRs. MCI has good 
      instructions on how to maintain your route objects.
      Let me know if there is any way I can help.
