As I understand things, the "without practically any authorization"
model holds for *everything* registered in the RADB.  Right?

If that's not a useful model for the RIPE DB, what about the RADB?


P.S.  Not to pick on the RADB.  Most IRRs, as I understand it,
enforce little in the way of authorization.  It's just that the RADB
was mentioned.
