Eh?  You mean you won't have to know which registry to hit to look up an
address beforehand?  Where would the fun be in that?

The ARIN database and the RIPE/APNIC databases are incompatible (something
that was going to be fixed in the RIDE (registry information data exchange)
WG, but it seems to have run into a snag or something), thus mirroring
would be a bit more work than one might imagine.
