I've updated this draft based on some feedback received already.  Given 
the discussion at the WG session, and the list discussion as of late, I'd like 
to ask that it become a WG item and used to inform the BGP Threat Model 
document -- particularly with regards to what's an acceptable residual risk and 
what is not.  Once that's comprehensive it can be used to inform secure routing 
requirements documents in the working group, and then we can begin assessing 
the feasibility of reducing various risks.
