A long time ago, a group asked the same question.  The answer turned
out to be that the Internic, not being an ISP, has no clue about the
routability of -any- prefix that is delegated.  No delegation registry
can ensure the routability of any given prefix.

Thngs may have changed, can you describe to me what you consider 
a "fully routable and portable IP space" might look like and
how such conditions might be enforced?
