the source is:

  http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space

and yes--it's a moving target; it actually was just updated on
12Apr2005...  allocated networks get returned, unallocated networks get
allocated--such is the ebb and flow of life.

RFC 3330 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3330.html) has more IP addresses
that are for "special use" (hint:  don't block those cable TV's, they've
gotten on the Internet in a big way somehow).

write an app to fetch/parse the list and update your "bogon list."
speaking of that term--google for it and you'll find some folks who've
done the work for you.
