I think that it would be an admirable goal...but
...There's something to be said for the fact that the 5 RIR's are
separate organizations, loosely joined by having comparable policies
yet retaining independence.
...It's not clear to me that the NRO is to have that much of a
functional role. Perhaps the RIRs can someday accept each other's
root certificates - that would need some discussion and review.
