It is silly to attempt to use only a single registry-of-origin
from the IRR mesh. If reading specifications is too difficult,
a cursory reading of just the irr.net website shows how ridiculous
such an implementation would be. Given the system is designed
to be distributed, only eating a single origin is pointless.
All that said, it is not uncommon for a provider who operates
a proper routing registry to force all but the demonstrably
clueful customers into theirs.
