If ARIN can determine what router owners may or may not do,   then  in another
year, a  proposal something like this could be added on top of the "No
Hijacking" rule,
so  no problem, right?  :

2.0 Using Number Resources with insecure versions of BGP is a Policy Violation

Propagating a BGP announcement containing IP number resources with
an insecure version of BGP is unacceptable behavior.

An insecure BGP operation is understood to be the acceptance or
announcement of any route received using BGP or other exterior routing protocol
without the numbers and paths related to each route having been confirmed on
the receiving side using BGPsec or comparable system according to RFCxxxx with
authenticity of every announcement verified against an ARIN-Approved RPKI.
