[DBWG] can't create ROA with ASN0 - myafrinic

Dear all,

It would be beneficial if AFRINIC allows one to specify “0” as the origin
ASN for a given IP resource. Indeed the ASN is reserved, but that shouldn’t
preclude anyone from listing it in their ROA.

It would also be good if AFRINIC rejects private ASNs from being specified
in this field. Specifically 23456, 64496-131071, and 4200000000-4294967295

Kind regards,
