I thought the problem was that: 1) Folks like to filter IANA-RESERVED space 2) Apparently some entities out there haven't updated their filters in aeons. A simple solution: 1) IANA creates an IANA-RESERVED IRR object 2) Entities switch to using this for their filters, and the updates happen automagically (Didn't someone already suggest this many many messages ago?)
