I wonder if this is the right question to ask, or we should step back and ask the question what can we do to provide a secure routing registry where people can document "this prefix will be announced by that AS" in a way that is a) strongly authenticated (= only the current holder of the address space can create such a route: object), and b) easy to use for people building filters (= not having to walk 5 different IRRDBs to find the set of prefixes announced by a possible customer)? instead? A, B or C may be a consequence of this. In any case, given that we have no proper global registry, and we have lots of cross-region routes ("addresses from RIR A, AS number from RIR B"), we need to find a way to document these properly. From a user perspective, I like to have all route: objects for my customers in a single place (RIPE BD, that is), so for me, "A" would be most convenient - but we need to add some sort of cross-RIR authentication layer.
