You go to multiple RIRs and get multiple prefixes.

Heck, you apparently can even get multiple disjunct prefixes from the
same RIR.

There went the whole idea of aggregation....

(Note though that some entities who actually got disjunct prefixes are
quite large and will be putting quite a number of hosts behind those
prefixes, thus the usage/prefix ratio is quite high and likely worthy of
a routing slot)
