...and it's not like ARIN, etc., does not announce to the
Internet community when it allocates from address space
which may have previously been listed in various operational
places as "bogon" or "unalloacted" -- they do.

I recall seeing similar announcements on the list from time
to time, suggesting due diligence on ARIN's behalf to notifying
people to modify their filtering. *plonk*

Scanning the archives, an example:

will become less reliable as an end-to-end transport medium, hurting
*everyone*.
