I've come to the conclusion that if someone put a nice web2.0+  
interface on creating and managing these objects it would be a lot  

If there were a customer portal where you could visit to say "update  
my prefix-list/acl to include the following new prefix(es), and push  
the change /now/" I presume that would drive customer utilization of  
these services and allow people to manage things "better".

There are lots of leaks all the time, as can be evidenced by the leak  
detection stuff I set up here:
