sure... I think sriram may cover this in his document about the decision
processes which lead to where we are today.

I think, one way to look at the document and situation is this:
  o community folks for each RIR asked for RPKI to be supported
  o RIR folk put in some development $$/effort to do that
  o no single-root came forward
  o to make the RPKI work, specifically for xfers, or one way wrt
transfers, is to fake the root at each RIR.
  o rpki progress can still be made until single-root arrives, and then
some re-signing and probably rough work would have to happen to move under
the single-root.

sure lots of evil other things could be afoot, but I don't see evidence of

again, perhaps it's worth the community folks (outside the ietf) just
  "I hear what you're saying, I like your want to keep this going forward,
but REALLY we need to sort out the issues around 'single-root' and get that
done.. the operational cost to not having a 'single-root' is just too
damned high."

apologies for not being up on the chain-of-command, but this doesn't seem
like it's enough... we've been waiting, what are the blockers? why can't
this action move forward? (yes, politics, let's move that to anyother list
I  suppose)
