I am interested in learning more about the technical measures which
the RIRs can employ to prevent fraudulent use of IP address space
(which is now occasionally reported on Spam-L already).   But at 
the level of the draft BCP, I am considering to add a new type
of abuse:

 - announcing a non-delegated route or other fraudulent use of
   IP address space.

Comments invited on
 * wording (correctness, inclusiveness)
 * practical effectiveness.

Those following the draft BCP would blocklist the offending ISP.
These things would get around pretty quickly.
