Additionally draft-ietf-dnsop-as112-ops contains guidance for setting  
up your own AS112 sink. The work involved is rather manual, as  
described, but I would suggest not especially complicated for someone  
familiar with *ix plumbing.

Since it's perfectly feasible to build a functional AS112 node out of  
a five-year-old desktop PC that would otherwise be thrown in the  
garbage, the capital cost is similarly low.
