Chis's Idea is nice. Routing engineers in ISP sometimes misconfigure their
gear, so bogus route will be announced. Checking the Routing Information
ande sending the warning messages to the ISP, makes the network more stable.

And, let me toss an additional idea to it.  
*) If an allocated addresses does not appear in such table for some period,
asking the aloocated guy to return them.
