The trouble is, some people are neglecting their jobs and making things 
rough for others (the people getting new allocations).

Somebody with one of these new cursed allocations ought to setup a system 
with two IPs (one from the new block, one from an older established block) 
and do reachability tests to various parts of the net, and then automate 
sending a notice of bogus filters to those ASNs reachable from the old IP, 
but not from the new one.

If I end up with some of this space, I'll be doing this.
