None of course.

The question is would you honor microallocations from a RIR if they
said "we have designated this particular space for microallocations, would
you please accept routes for these netblocks with these prefixes?"

It is of course completely up to you, and I don't believe anyone was
questioning or challenging the sovereignty of your network.

Interne routing works due to cooperation, not coersion.
