So, to pose the obvious question: Should there be?

Well, calling the law on someone is kind of the whiner's way out anyway.
 It would seem that the community could agree on a set of standards for
dealing with such problems and if you don't agree to those standards,
nobody routes your traffic.  In other words, if network A finds network B
announcing allocated space belonging to network A and network A makes them
(network B) and their upstream provider(s) aware and they refuse to stop
the announcement, there should be a mechanism by which the community can
agree to filter Network B's AS  *and* the AS of the upstream(s) until the
situation is rectified.  That's a pretty big hammer but verifying someone's
legitimate claim on address space isn't that hard, in most cases.

The problem is no one will actually blacklist a big ASN because its not in
the individual best interest, which scales greatly with size. RPKI is
pretty much the only real fix for this if the chain until the major carrier
refuses to delist, and RPKI has it's own issues.
