RPKI is all about Internet routing. Though for its legal convenience rather
than any consideration for ISPs, ARIN imposes limits on folks'
participation in RPKI as well.

RDNS delegation on off-byte boundaries is a long solved problem. If ARIN's
community decided we wanted IPv4 /32 assignments to be allowed, RDNS would
not stand in the way.

Another thing to consider is that ARIN policies only apply to those

Both of which are excellent things to bring up while discussing the
proposal. Neither reasonably contributes to a conclusion that the proposal
is out of scope.

A conclusion I hope the community reaches after a full and fair
consideration of the proposal on its merits.
