There is a solution to that, which is an RPKI object (or PeeringDB, or
WHOIS, or -insert option-) that says who is the trusted IRR for that ASN.
That way one doesn't have to get all IRR DBs and try figuring out what is
authoritative and what is not.

While there are some LAC networks connected to the Brazilian IX,
inter-country traffic is usually not high in Latin America. It's everyone
pushing traffic to Miami...

Which is curious because TC is very strict in associating who can manage
objects with IP allocations. But it is more of a "I know RADB, I don't know
you" kind of thinking, possibly.
