new site AMS-IX as 6bone pTLA 3FFE:3000::/24

I have added the new site AMS-IX as pTLA 3FFE:3000::/24:
I have done this without the usual 2-week review cycle as it didn't quite fit the normal process,and they are certainly ready and qualified. AMS-IX will be a native IPv6 Exchange and has SURFnet, AT&T, UUnet-NL, and Cistron as their first participants.
After they get it going, and we have the Sub-TLA assignments coming out of the registries, they would be one of the first candidates to provide a real service.
So, welcome to AMS-IX!
