The IRR provides the only mechanism currently available to validate the contents of a BGP session and the mapping of AS number to list of networks. If you think of the IRR as a system that models the registration process of valid address space between "consumer" and "seller" all the way along the chain, then it becomes a prime tool that you can use to ensure only authorized things come through a BGP connection. Without a validation check on the contents of the BGP connection, you are subject to all the "diseases" that come with transitive trust relationships. Routing registries are, in my opinion, the main technology we currently have to ensure safe routing exchange.
