[please note these my own views]
The RIPE NCC does not interfere with routing polices and has no technical
or operational control over any of the networks using any of the IPs
allocated by the RIPE NCC.
Though some ISPs do use the RIPEdb for building the routing macros, I
don't see how the NCC could stop someone from routing their IPs.
