Perhaps you learned the term "advertisement" instead of announce, I
think they are synonymous:

Perhaps I am being thick, and by "scope", you mean "does one have to
use BGP?" when you announce your IP block.   In that case, I think the
answer is no.  RIRs don't generally tell you that you must announce
your address space in a specific way. That's for an LIR to decide IMO.

route indicates how we get there."  Jon Postel
