Re: AS8584 taking over the internet

Harping just a little more, unless the IP registries take the lead and push 
their hierarchical allocation tree data out and ISPs pick it up and do useful 
filtering with it, this problem will continue to occur regularly. Talk to your 
registry and your router vendors to start getting the pieces in place to get a 
global solution.
I like the idea of somehow using registry data to help build configs, but
confess to not liking the idea of using DNS to do so (the IDR proposal), mostly
because I don't see trusting the IP registries to do this, and in fact have a health
dose of paranoia about giving routing control (i.e. the availability the
service) to a service that can be manipulated by a single person
