I think the issues may be too large to effectively use this. What constitutes in-use? Just because the address space is not advertised to the Internet that you see, does not mean that it is not routed, nor does it mean that it is not in-use.
This also continues the game of trying to stuff yourself into the smallest box possible to save on fees, which I believe is a dangerous one. It may also lead to attempts to hide usage from the monitoring.
