Thanks for providing the explanation, Mark.  There are bound to be
some surprises along the way as we all get comfortable with the RPKI.

You're probably already thinking along these lines, but could ARIN put
up some monitoring of its RPKI output, alerting your operations staff
for things like the number of authenticated RPKI objects dropping
sharply?  And to make sure any such monitoring is not taken offline
during general systems maintenance events?
