The IRR has, generally, been known to not be so great at being either
securely authoritative or having correct information. Hence all the
clean-up happening across the Internet.

Pertinent to this case, this object could not be deleted manually by

All of that being said, the IRR does not automatically configure eBGP,
as you rightly pointed out earlier. People do.
