One planned use of the planned Route Server extensions (RSng++) is
to allow real-time correlation of routing data against the totality
of the IRR.  This will likely result in a publicly accessible
database of what the Route Servers have seen in the global routing
mesh.  For completeness, such a database may also include views from
other routers.  One possible use for such a database is an report similar
to the CIDR report showing non-registered routes.

Are there any plans to correlate route registry objects against 
address registry databases?  

I believe that one of the roots of this thread is the need to validate
the legitimacy of not only routes, but registered route objects.  
Although it is too much to expect that route objects will match up
cleanly with address block assignments at the outset, performing 
such a correlation would at least identify the scope of the problem.
