You missed the words "well-operated". 

Today there is no well-operated network of IRRs so
there is bad data in the databases. In addition, there
is the question of how to use the IRR data. Should you
build filters from it? Should you use it to validate your
own internal database with human beings chasing up 
the differences and fixing whichever database is wrong?
