I agree.

The first step would be figuring out the needed aggregate announcements,
contacting the providers or upstreams.

Who is willing to run a database to coordinate the effort?

In North America, most everybody has returned from holidays.  Let's make
September the month of CIDR improvement!  And October 1st the deadline....

I do not agree the filters as originally proposed are "too aggressive".
Traffic engineering with one's peers is all very well and good, but at
the second AS (or overseas) it's not acceptable.
