thanks for your review.
> For what it is worth - as member (and dependent) of the community around OpenBSD rpki-client, I observe people are holding the various pieces of the puzzle up against the light in various direction and positions, trying to see how how to align (if possible) the implementation of our RPKI cache software with the spirit of George's observation. Test balloons in the form of POSIX.1 patch(1) files are shared within that community. And it appears it'll be a multi-week effort to resolve the puzzle in a way that all people involved would want to run in production on their EBGP routers.

I'll try to be clear in my writing.

will do.
