I suspect the attitude is "why bother when we can just require that 
everyone use the IRR run by their RIR, rely on the RIR to not allow 
bogosity in thier IRR, and keep using our existing software, just 
limiting the IRR sources from which it'll accept objects?"

BTW...speaking of MANRS, if there's someone on-list who can help out with 
some questions, I'd appreciate the contact.  For $work, I'd been talking 
to Kevin Meynell about our joining.  It fell through the cracks and 
recently popped back up.  Recent email to Kevin got no reply.  The MANRS 
web site could use quite a bit of clarification (or maybe just toss it and 
start over).

Also, I'm curious how common it is for networks to build IRR-based 
prefix-list filters for all their peers (i.e. IX peers, where you 
have lots of peers)?
