No.  Why would I?

The ARIN folks have already made it abundantly clear... to me and to others...
that this sort of thing is "Not our job, man."

ARIN maintains a data base.  If other people elect to ignore what's in that
data base... well... as anybody from ARIN will be only too happy to tell you,
they are not the routing police.
