I'd be interested in more details on the risks you see ASN transfers 
creating for RPKI.

Would such risks to RPKI associated with ASN transfers be any different 
than ARIN reassigning an ASN that was returned to it or that ARIN reclaimed?

Are you saying that ASNs are suppose to be both globally and eternally 

I'm not saying I'd be opposed to ASNs being eternally unique, but I 
didn't know it was a requirement, especially of RPKI.
