Then again, I'm not sure that people will be spending their resources
exchanging routing information with people who allow junk into their
routing.  (To put it another way, spending resources troubleshooting other
people's brain damage.)

What AS690 does is not just bureaucratic silliness.  It's also enlightened
self-interest (as Curtis keeps saying).  If enough people have the sense to
want to protect themselves, the Routing Registry will fly.
