i do not understand what you are proposing.  ahhh.  you mean
  o each asn register a pingable address within its normal space,
    maybe in their irr route object
  o the rirs set up a routing island with only the new prefix in
    it
  o from a box with that new prefix, the rir pings all asn's 
    registered pingable addresses from the first step
  o whine about any which are not pingable

interesting modulo issues of reachability at any one time.  and
places more of a routing policing burden on the rirs.  though some
at least one rir is just dying to become net police, so it might 
sell.
