While I could agree that its not a problem till someone tries to use it,
I point out that ARIN does make an announcement when they are going
to start issuing from a new IANA block.

And I'll counter-point out that ARIN is notifying relevant groups in its
Region.  Why would you expect the RIPE NCC to formally notify a group
(nanog) that is not in its region (Europe) ?  

To keep this operational, this lists the various /8s and who is
(nominally) in charge of 'em; it may be of interest to people who haven't
reviewed their filters in ages:

We, The Net Operators, should have this information so that we can update
our filters, should we see fit to, and thus cause as little negative impact
as possible.
