The existing solutions do not have to be used in parallel with each
other. They can be used on their own.

But you still haven't answered my question, you've only answered why you
think using the RPKI would be an option. It's still not clear, to me
anyway, why the current solutions are not yielding the desired effect,
by whichever measure that applies to your specific operation.

In your case, are you able to share why you stopped using Team Cymru's
BGP feed?

Yes, AFRINIC would be the source of the information, in the same way
they are the source of IRR and WHOIS data.
