Bill - 
   It’s quite possible that there are already parties announcing that block
   in locations throughout the Internet, but the vast majority of ISPs seem
   to follow the routing information from ARIN's peering and contracted 
   transit providers.

   Ultimately, these matters are resolved based on mutual cooperation
   and a shared fabric of trust; while the registry may be an important 
   common element of that fabric, that is still not the same thing as a 
   legal right against the parties who participate.
