* Several people still peer via the route servers
* Several transits filter their customers by RADB or a private RADB
  which feeds the IRR.

If you do either of the above, chaning a public IRR (once) is easier
than changing n private databases. The alternative is no filtering.
Hopefully natural selection will take its course on transits who
do this on a regular basis.
