I know that the RIRs have efforts underway to publish such authoritative lists. I do not know the exact status of this work. But I fully agree with your requirement
for a *single* *authoritative* list.

Yes, we at the RIPE NCC are working on such list. However the task, as you said, is not as easy as it seems to be. We have to be confident in the data we publish and this requires some work especially regarding early registrations.

There are also efforts by the RIRs to make allocation records more accurate and appearing in the right RIR, the ERX project for instance http://www.arin.net/registration/erx/index.html.

Of course I would use it in the routers I operate. However these are not significant
to many peoiple these days.

PS: I do not care at all about the format as long as it is readily machine parseable.
