Sorry, *who* gets to play the net politzai?  Registries have no control
over service providers, and service providers have insufficient
human resources to do that (and most won't do that anyway).

Note that updating exterior policy filters by a large ISP involves
carefully planned and timed update on some dozen-odd routers, so it is
not done often, and certainly won't be done just to punish some clueless

We'll be back shortly after the expected RA advertisement break...

Not speaking for Sprint.
