In my experience with 69/8, most of the problem sites were "end users"
rather than service providers...though in some cases, those end users were
things like parts of the US Military and NASA, etc.  The only provider I
remember running into that had a static bogon issue was fast.net, but they
don't even exist anymore AFAIK, as they were bought by USLEC.

So while the list would be useful as a contact list for those affected, I
doubt it's going to influence anyone's transit buying decisions.
