Tim:

I think that RFC 6487 should also be updated to adjust the RPKI certificate profile.  In phase 1, several URLs in the certificate could offer rsync:// and rrdp://, and then in Phase 4 (not documented), the rsync:// can get dropped.

The main reason for this is pragmatism: introducing a new kind of object identifier (e.g. URN based) would introduce a breaking change and make deployment much, much harder.

The Publication Server may outsource its HTTPS function to a CDN, but it may not possible for this CDN to handle or forward rsync requests.

In principle the PS can have bugs, or do a poor job of checking this. But they are already able to mess things up when we have rsync only. Because of the compound URI (RRDP + rsync) there is no new attack vector opened this way.
