Yahoo's SpiderMan

Don't think I've ever seen Spiderman crawling before and APNIC claims it's from a registered block from Yahoo in China.

A lookup revealed:
Official Name:
IP address:

APNIC claims it's them:
inetnum: -
netname: YAHOO-ASIA-2

So now the big question is what's the advantage of letting an all English web site get crawled by a Chinese version of Yahoo?

Anyone have any insights on this?
