Thank you for the quick response.

I was asking for an example of it happening.  For what it is worth, I 
read RFC 6482 and I didn't find anything about ROAs being a potential issue.

Section 5 of the RFC states that: "There is no assumption of 
confidentiality for the data in a ROA".  I also took a quick look at 
RFC 6480 in case I missed anything.  Where does the "confidentiality 
guarantees" come from?
