Hi Michael,

That could work, in this particular case if not the more general case.
It's a bit of a hack.

Do you have a decent overview document for SIDR? Perusing the drafts,
I couldn't make heads or tails of how authority delegation for who
signs the ROA is supposed to work.

I think I'd also like to see SIDR deployed before writing ARIN policy
against it. I think it's worth discussing the kinds of policy
structures SIDR could enable but I don't think it has developed quite
to the point where we should hold our breaths and wait for it.
