So, what do you suggest how the gaping security problems of RADB can be

Now, I understand that you can buy a maintainer object, and thus protect
your own address space - but as a user of the RADB, how can I see which
objects are legitimate, and which (paid-for!) maintainers just put in
stuff that does not belong to them?

I point to our own hijacked route entry again -, registered
and maintained by "MAINT-AS197329", very obviously not legitimate 
(since a RADB query also shows the RIPE DB object where this address space 
belongs to!).  The RADB maintainers do not think there is a problem and
they should maybe remove it (but expect me to go chase whoever put it in).

Building routing filters from a data source this quality might give
people a warm and fuzzy feeling, but someone who wants to announce other
people's address space will not be hindered the least by that.
