... if everybody used the IRR to build explicit filters everywhere, if everybody kept their objects in the IRR up-to-date, and if there was some appropriate authorisation scheme in place to allow you to trust the data in the IRR implicitly, it'd be a perfect world.

The IRR is currently a reasonable tool to use to avoid listening to routes which are advertised by mistake from peers who populate the IRR accurately. It's not a reasonable tool for avoiding maliciously bogus routes, since sticking maliciously bogus information in the IRR is trivial.
