As the reason they should not be in RIPE is RIPE doesn't hold the
ownership data I suggested they move to a RIPE alike
which does hold their ownership, afaik RADB doesn't

Seems pretty simple, RIPE delegates the space and maintains owners so
is a natural place for their owner to record their allowed use. So ARIN
and others need to do the same, thus all space is covered and then
can me munged into whatever will enforce the use be it router based
signed advertisements or an out of band system that applies controls
to the routers directly or via a humanoid.
