Listing the capabilities that the RPKI enables seems reasonable to 
me, so long as we don't claim that the near term work items will 
yield solutions to all of them.  The RPKI is not designed to support 
"any number of things." It is designed to support a set of near and 
longer term BGP routing security solutions.
