The best you can _probably_ hope for is a opt-in mechanism in
which you are alerted that prefixes you have "registered" with the
aforementioned system are being originated by an ASN which is not
authorized to originate them.

A lot of smart folks have given some thought to this exact issue,
and perhaps one of the best examples of this is:
