Hm, I would rather do this globally but maybe this is the way to go...
Geo-aggregation is something that stands its best chance of being implemented locally:

- the 'players' involved will be fewer
- requirements for a workable policy will be easier to work out
(and fewer conflicts between requirements)
- there may be existing 'arbiter of last resort' (particularly at
national levels) to resolve the inevitable conflicts.

Ie this may be best done even /below/ the RIR level (though, RIR agreement would be needed).

Still though, hard to see it happening without some acceptance by operators.
