It is possible today for an org to create a route entry in the IRR for a 
network reassigned to them by an LIR/ISP. The assignee has the control 
over the route record, not the assigner.

Recognizing that the goals and mechanisms of IRR are similar but not 
identical to RPKI, it would be helpful to have an RPKI mechanism in ARIN 
Online for an assignee to create their own ROAs, as Owen said.

If that were to be added, there should also be a mechanism for the 
assigner to cryptographically revoke that authorization should the need
