Actually, you could kill two birds w/ one stone by keeping the data
in your inverse delegations.  There has been some thought on this
which could double as a distributed IRR, esp. for those who have
trouble getting to/through those centralized databases.

A brief note on how this might be done may be found at:

if I might toot my own horn here.  Note that this is similar
to, but does not go quite as far as the presentation given at
a recent NANOG mtg.
