The only RPSL repository that I know of that has any semblance of  
trustworthiness is the RIPE db, and then, only for resources that were  
assigned or allocated by the RIPE NCC.

The ARIN RR contains just as much cruft as any of the other non-RIPE  
registries, in my experience. The RADB is nothing special in this  
regard. Filtering objects with source RPSL and discarding those with  
source elsewhere is surely all fail and no win. Sounds like someone  
needs a beating from the cluestick.
