And that will do what exactly?

Back when I worked at an RIR, a prefix was "misplaced".  When I contacted the (country monopoly PTT) ISP and told them 
the prefix had been removed from APNIC's database and should not be routed.  Their response was "We have a contract 
with the customer for connectivity.  We do not have a contract with you." and I was encouraged to get the customer to 
voluntarily withdraw the prefix.

If BGPSEC+RPKI were deployed, there might be something active the RIRs could do.  However, this has its own 
implications regarding centralized control of the routing system (as discussed, ironically enough, in the RIPE region). 
 And this is going to get much more 'interesting' as the IPv4 free pool exhausts and the market moves from black to 
grey or white.  Fun times ahead.
