Ron - 

This is likely to be discussed by the ARIN Board in 2019, as a result of the ongoing review of legal hurdles related to RPKI services.

It’s premature to speculate whether such is a reasonable mechanism without a detailed legal analysis – it wouldn’t be the fee so much as the associated services agreement that would likely be the challenging part (i.e. the clause that’s been cited as a hurdle is the disclaimer of property rights, and a reversal in this area would have significant implications for the community’s ability to have any maintenance fees or community-developed policy applied to these address blocks.)
