That is one idea.  I don't see it as the only idea.

Many people filtering spam would make use of a service that accurately
listed "dark" space, so even if someone was able to get it routed
server admins could drop mail from it.

Firewall admins would like to use it for packet filtering, not route
filtering.

Statistics people would like to use it to match traffic as seen on the
net with source RIR, company, whatever.

Making it easy to get into BGP is necessary, but far from sufficient.
