Hi Albert,

Would you explain your reasoning here? How do you get from the RIR
delegation by IANA to blocking abuse sources?

If you filter all supernets delegated to APNIC, you will mangle some of
your U.S. mainland traffic. Even if following rir boundaries was an
administrative requirement placed on the registrant (it isn't) there are
too many ambiguous cases. Who addresses the fiber ethernet link from Tokyo
to San Francisco? What about the end users of global satellite Internet?
