You are right, RPKI does fit the bill in a number of ways, and I look forward to the operators taking advantage of the good bits. However this does not preclude the RIPE community from improving the quality of another commonly used source: IRR. As you know there are only 2 or 3 networks on this planet using RPKI in their operations, while I can point at many more networks using IRR to build their whitelists for provisioning. As you know there is a feature gap between IRR and RPKI. RPKI doesn't have an "AS-SET"-like replacement, and not all the RPKI TALs are as easy to obtain as their equivalent IRR data. > a least it's a more credible argument than thinking encouraging ipv4 > run-out will increase ipv6, as opposed to nat, uptake. < dripping > sarcasm > OK, this seems off topic.
