Not ready yet.  A few year's experience of using this protocol
suggests the need for an additional message type, to let the RPKI
engine monitor what the publication server has on file for it.  We've
seen a few cases where, for whatever reason (bug, system crash, ...)
the two can get out of sync, and while it's theoretically possible for
the RPKI engine to determine what's in the publication repository by
fetching as if it were a relying party, it'd probably be easier just
to let the RPKI engine ask the publication server directly.
