Based on this draft the recommended preference order is:

1) Validation ok
2) not found
3) Validation nok

Suppose an operator would use local-pref to achieve this.
This intention (preferring validated routes) will break, when there's a 
more specific announcement that doesn't validate.
For example the youtube incident would not have been stopped by doing this.

Are there any suggestions or recommendations for how to handle these cases?
