That feels like a misconstrued statement.

You highlight a subset of RPKI: a feature that are commonly available
today. There is potentially far more that can be done with the RPKI,
such as the distribution and validation of router certificates,
manifests and other statements related to network management.

The RPKI stands for "Resource Public Key Infrastructure", it is a public
key infrastructure framework of which you currently only see one

It is important in this discussion to recognise the value and potential
of the RPKI.

Kind regards,
