OTOH, the first customer in that block might have clue, and many others
might not.

I'll bet we could get much more thorough coverage if you took a BGP
routing table, expanded all supernets into collections of /24's, and then
distributed chunks of the resulting list...sort of like the rc5 encryption
breaking project.  If half the subscribers of nanog would each be willing
to check one chunk, the whole list could probably be processed in no time.
