So if I understand how RADB works, ISPs can poll it frequently and update
their filters automatically (or semi-automatically).  Is there risk of a
polling ISP's system seeing this data, and being confused by one ISP listing
the origin as the correct one, and the other ISP listing the origin as their
own?  Can an upstream create a registration for us in RADB the correct way,
or does that require us having our own account on RADB?  I'm guessing I'm
wondering what is the 'most correct' way?
