Well, this might pose one small problem… ARIN doesn’t approve (or disprove)
any other RIR’s RPKI, nor does it have any authority or basis for doing so.

As such, you’ve basically said that anyone operating routers in North America
cannot accept BGP announcements of any prefix not registered in the ARIN
