+1 on encouraging everyone to create ROA's for your allocations (in all
regions, not just AFRINIC).

Please remember to click the "up to /24" + "up to /48" button so that
the ROA automatically applies to all more-specifics that you may
originate. We've found that the majority of "Invalids" are due to
more-specifics that have not been ROA'd, even though the parent
allocation has.
