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.
