Hi Michel,

Unless ARIN did something or failed to do something which contributed
to the problem you described, it's not obvious that such information
is useful here. Can you articulate something ARIN could do which would
improve the basic fact that configuring and maintaining cryptographic
validation systems is technically challenging?

There are certainly things ARIN could do to improve RPKI uptake, but
I'm not aware of any that are responsive to the specific concern you
