If I understand what is being suggested, IANA or US government buy-in  
is irrelevant.  Anyone at any time can create their own IP  
registration database.  What matters is whether or not anyone  
(particularly ISPs when they determining whether or not to accept a  
customer's assertion that the customer "owns" the address space being  
presented to the ISP) looks at it.
