And I'll counter-point out that ARIN is notifying relevant groups in its
Region.  Why would you expect the RIPE NCC to formally notify a group
(nanog) that is not in its region (Europe) ?  

To keep this operational, this lists the various /8s and who is
(nominally) in charge of 'em; it may be of interest to people who haven't
reviewed their filters in ages:
