I see your point here. However, I am personally very grateful to Rob for 
his BitTorrent experiment. I believe that the choke point of the global 
RIR repositories is a vital challenge in RPKI deployment. I think the 
working group would benefit from spending significant bandwidth thinking 
about this challenge and I see Rob's presentation as a very reasonable 
way to get the ball rolling.

That is, this particular topic has been completely dormant on the 
mailing list in the past months. Therefore, doing any kind of concrete 
experiment and presenting it to the working group as a possible approach 
for getting around the global-repository choke-point seems like a 
valuable way to spur work/discussion on this topic.
