There is precendence that spammers (and other abusers) hijack address space from the registries, most often "old and not well maintained" address blocks (weak passwords, mail only authentication, and such), and abuse that. Demonstrating that some abuse did *not* happen due to measures taken is sort of difficult - but I'm sure the LIR folks can say some more about this, like "how often do you get PI requests that never come back when asking for proof of existance" or such?
