RIPE at least uses a hierarchical authorisation scheme which means you

This means for me to add a route I effectively have proof from my
authorisation being granted by RIPE that this is mine to play with.

Speaking as someone who is extremely annoyed by providers/peers/etc proxy 
registering IRR routes, I think a system which locks down registrations 
within specific prefixes to a specific maintainer, and an approval system 
for people who want to register blocks within your space, would be 
insanely useful. Someone please implement this for us US folks using irrd.
