Independent use of LIR-assigned addresses in BGP should be
discouraged. It pollutes the BGP table by requiring disaggregation of
neighboring addresses which might otherwise be efficiently routable.

Also unclear why we should pretend that LIRs do a better job enforcing
ARIN policy on address registrants than ARIN itself does. A LIR
leasing arrangement delegates that responsibility from ARIN without,
to my view, any good cause.
