My understanding is that RIPE, while quite good, still contains a
significant amount of old data that needs to be regularly flushed.  It
certainly seems reasonable to use its information as a good first
approximation of the validity of a route, and I think that would go
quite well with our recommendation, reducing the number of routes
flagged as suspicious.
