You may want to consider the Internet Draft submitted by Xiaodong Lee et al: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-lee-sidr-rpki-deployment-01

It may give you some insight into the concerns that are being raised as to the risks associated with RPKI and some of the implementation complexity.

I think the point is that some of these tools may need some refinement and adoption can be encouraged however it does come with attendant risks.
