Thanks John.  That is a good point, though I would counter that there is 
a difference between the implied agreement that the other registries 
have vs the explicit, click-through agreement ARIN uses.

This could start a whole debate on the strength of an implied agree vs. 
click-though vs. an ink-and-paper agreement.

My point is that I'm concerned the community is silently rejecting the 
agreement. If there is dissatisfaction in the community, I would like to 
try to organize it and turn it into useful and constructive feedback.

RPKI adoption in the ARIN region is lagging behind others.  I understand 
that creating ROAs and validating them are different processes (one 
requiring accepting the Relying agreement, the other not), but I wonder 
how many people are opting out of RPKI all together to avoid the issue 

Thank you.
