Sorta, but on those your costs are limited by your consumption.  Your
utility companies don't assess fines if you don't reaffirm your address on a
regular basis.  Even my cel company doesn't assess fines if I don't answer
their calls or respond to their voicemails.

I understand and appreciate your devil's advocacy..   

I am really warming up to the WHOIS!bogon idea..  The problem is that it
would effectively be reclamation, and I haven't worked out the angles on
that yet..  Maybe a choice of whoises..  One (WHOIS && !bogon) and one
(WHOIS | stale) {please excuse my bad regexp} and the community would be
free to utilize their preference according to their needs at the moment..

How would we best incorporate this into routing?
