Wouldn't a well-operated network of IRRs used by 95% of

We have such a database (used by Verio and others), but the Panix
incident
happened anyway due to bit rot.  We've got to find a way to fix the
layer 8
problems before we can make improvements at layer 3.

If an IRR suffers from bit-rot, then I don't consider
it to be "well-operated" and therefore it cannot be
considered to be part of a well-operated network of
IRRs.

honestly I'm not a fan of IRR's, so don't pay attention to them, but... is
the IRR 'not well operated' or is the data stale because the 'users' of
the IRR are 'not well operated' ? (the IRR as near as I can tell is
nothing but a web/whois server that you sign-up-for and push/pull data
through, right?)
