Technically true, but administratively not feasible. Coordinating private ASNs would be similar to coordining RFC1918 space between different entities, although it's definitely a nice goal.

I'd say you already fail at coordinating Cox and SBC before any link
is up and prefixes get announced.  I bet they can't even agree on which
of them writes the prefix and ASN application to ARIN.

$realworld always wins.
