Protocol and implementation issues can be resolved with deployment. If
no one deploys, it is hard to refine things.

In general, I agree that forcing things down people's throats is not
kosher. But from a practical standpoint, we (SEACOM) have deployed RPKI
and have helped to refine the implementation we use over the past 3
years through operational feedback to the various vendors in our network.

I understand the issues around some being concerned about the
centralized nature of the RPKI. There have been suggestions put forward
to mitigate that, in the same way we trust the centralized model of the DNS.
