There exist RIPE and other data bases - yes. They does have
route objects. But this objects are (usially) oriented to
the As path filtering, not more. Who really builds filter lists
for the networks via data bases? I know about MCI (and their DB); our
provider EUnet build this list by hands (exactly Peer Bilse's hands -:));
no one of scientific networks there does more than AS-path filtering.

Small correction. The current EuropaNET/INCS service is run by BT and
they definitely create network filters based on the RIPE DB, on top of
AS path filters.
