Please don't conflate the policy mechanisms enabled by the IRR policy *language*/specification itself with the *data* contained in the IRR ...

Wrt your last paragraph: care to share a link the I-D (or, RFC) that you allude to above?  

I think your last paragraph is alluding to tagging routes with standard BGP communities, based on your "simple minimal" criteria, before they are sent to route-views.  That strikes me as potentially orthogonal to issues with the present data in the IRR.
