I like this approach.

Is this always true? Are there ASNs from other sources or pre-ARIN
assignments, or direct assignments from IANA or other source that
do not have a maintainer. Would it be easier to have the policy
applied only to maintainers then instead? Also, then the definition
of abuse (see above) will need to make sure that it is maintainer
associated rather than ip address based.

Just to be clear, what do you mean by a maintainer? Do you mean
an OrgId? or something else here?
