A few months ago, when establishing a new peering relationship I was
encouraged (actually required) to utilize one of the IRRs.  I took the time
to register all of my routes, ASNs, etc.  However, as I learned today, this
was probably done in vain.  Too many people won't spend the extra
30-seconds to verify the information listed there or in ARINs WHOIS.

It's amazing isn't it. It isn't only fraud and maliciousness that this prevents. 

A number of times I have been asked to advertise space or open filters for space based on typos and people not 
understanding address notation and CIDR. So it's with doing if only to prevent this.
