I don't think the IRR is so much a hack (it's a tool), but we're  
lacking the process and infrastructure to vet/validate that a given  
ASN is *authorized* to originate a prefix, and all of the policy bits  
(which the IRR has if you use it) associated with which ASNs should  
propagate the prefix, etc...

We're lacking the authority and delegation model that DNS has, I think?
