Yes. The people who don't read NANOG do read the Cook Report and the trade 
press. If you want to reach everyone in charge of operating a network then 
you need to use more media than just NANOG.

This is essentially what I am suggesting except using LDAP rather than 
RADB/IRR technology. I don't believe that RADB will ever be used by the 
majority of North American network operators but I do believe that LDAP 
has a chance of 100% penetration in the same way that 100% of network 
operators use UNIX servers and scripting languages in their network 
operations.
