Another thing that would affect me as a service provider would be the account 
history.  I would probably be more skeptical if this was a long term customer 
who has been announcing this prefix for a long period of time vs a new customer 
that just began announcing it.

i.e.  If I just began announcing it and there is an ownership dispute right 
away, I might suspect my new customer misappropriated the block.  If he had 
been announcing it for years and now someone wants it taken down, that is a 
higher burden of proof for me.  As always bottom line is who has the block 
registered with RAR is the final authority.
