Why is the vetting needed to issue and RPKI certificate any more or less 
than would needed to bless a transfer or the return of a resource?

I'd agree with not wanting to link one with the other, but the vetting that is 
necessary for transfer, return of resource to ARIN for redistribution, or RPKI 
is mostly equivalent.
