Transferring your resources to RIPE will either require a contract with
RIPE if you wish to become an LIR or a contract with a sponsoring LIR. So,
you are probably not doing RPKI without some kind of contract. You may have
some choices on who you contract with, but I see a contract in your
future if you want to do RPKI.

As for ALT-DB that could be an option. However, if content providers start
requiring authenticated IRR information, which is being at least talked
about, then ALT-DB might only be a short-term option.

The experiment was not a failure, but we have better options now, so I
agree it's time for it to go.
