I don't think filtering on RIR allocations has anything to do with keeping the
small  people down.  It is not a political problem, it is a technology problem.

It will ultimately be solved when core routers can handle an Internet worth of
and an EGP is developed to efficiently propogate changes (perhaps an open
registry with policy applied locally).  One has to wonder why vendors don't
satisfy the
first requirement today.

Until that time, you can either satisfy the (fairly reasonable) minimum
allocation requirements,
Implement any number of alternate kludges that have been proposed, or go home.
