Currently, there is no way to reliably identify the route servers for a given ix. Adding the field is_rs would solve this problem. because then a netixlan object containing a field "is_rs": true clearly identifies a route server for the given ix.

@peeringdb/pc, what do you think about this proposal?

I guess to make this foolproof we also would have to add a field rs_asn somewhere to the ix record. Otherwise too many might be tempted to set "is_rs": true, even though they are not a route server

Could we safety check this s.t. the net has to belong to the same org as the ix?

I could imagine that the route server is run by a different organisation than the ix. Hence, what extra level of safety check would be added? The ix already has to specify the route server asn.

@peeringdb/pc what do you think about it? Adding a field rs_asn to object ix and field is_rs to object netixlan would allow for automatic detection of route servers for an IX. Thoughts?
