That document never managed to reconcile the various views relating to
AS Path validation, so I'm unclear if you are citing this as a completed
activity, because to me it certainly appeared to be an incomplete piece
of work.

To be specific to quote from section 7 of this draft:

      AS_PATH Feasibility Check: The AS_PATH list may correspond to a
      valid list of autonomous systems according to the first
      verification category listed in the "Areas to Secure" Section
      above.  Further study will determine the extent to which this is a
      security requirement.
