People actually read that?

Yes. The people who don't read NANOG do read the Cook Report and the trade
press. If you want to reach everyone in charge of operating a network then
you need to use more media than just NANOG.

A simple solution:
1) IANA creates an IANA-RESERVED IRR object
2) Entities switch to using this for their filters, and the
updates happen automagically

This is essentially what I am suggesting except using LDAP rather than
RADB/IRR technology. I don't believe that RADB will ever be used by the
majority of North American network operators but I do believe that LDAP
has a chance of 100% penetration in the same way that 100% of network
operators use UNIX servers and scripting languages in their network
operations.
