If I may... The idea of using a routing registry for
this purpose has been suggested before. I still think
it is a valid approach. Could be very useful in assisting
with better proxy aggregation for all.
Here here. This came up in response to an experiment on the
routing table (http://routes.netaxs.com).
But unless everyone uses an RR, it is not going to be a useful for building
proxy-aggregations on the fly (i.e. without human checking and intervention).
