I have been following it quite closely, actually.
Clearly you haven't been following the ppml mailing list. As I have
already suggested on that list, ARIN could publish an authoritative
directory of all unallocated IP address space at the largest aggregate
level in a form that makes it easy for network operators to incorporate
into their martian filters.
Why would ARIN specifically provide such a list? ARIN is not responsible
for the unallocated space, and there is more in the world than just ARIN.
There are liability issues with that, not to mention the fact that it is
more an IANA function (if for the sake of argument someone would implement
I guess monitoring NANOG or some other mailing list for announcements is
somehow a lot more work. Oh well.
And no, I'm not suggested that anyone connect their productions routers
directly to an ARIN BGP feed. Smaller network operators will probably
find such a direct BGP feed to be convenient but I expect all the larger
network operators to use the BGP feed as a way of monitoring for changes
which would be reviewed by some clueful operator before building the
filters. That should not be a problem assuming that ARIN issues addresses
