A nondestructive and possibly sufficient mechanism would be to send PAIR
errors/warnings to the appropriate maintainers monthly by email.  People
with clean RADB entries wouldn't be sent anything.  This would be a good
periodic reminder for engineering groups that have it in the back of their
mind to clean up their RADB entries but never get around to it unless a
peer or customer opens a trouble ticket. 

Heck, the warnings could even have the appropriate RADB object (or mail
command) preformatted and ready to email.  This way the maintainer has
final control.
