The DUNDi system seems a little better in this regard since the
decentralized nature permits me to "announce" my telco numbers to the VoIP

But Dundi isn't the solution for this, it certainly won't do what you're
hoping it will. The question is how long before script kiddies start
announcing your route to other people to some sex chat line, rerouting
political numbers to their opposition or any other number of fun things
to do on a friday night when you have no life.
The fact is without some form or centralisation or checks and balances
you can't trust anyone outside your little ring of immediate friends.
This means that dundi will only be useful for voip providers and
enterprise wanting an easish way to distribute their dialing plan, it
won't be useful in the medium to long term for the general public.
What's more the decentralised nature means each call probes every
server, so instead of probing one server and getting an authoritive
response it could be bounced across the entire network for every call,
short term this would have no impact, what about 1 billion calls, or 10
billion calls, potentially there could be more traffic for finding
numbers then actually voice calls.
