Indeed, I believe that, if the publication point for a Certification Authority in the RPKI is rejected for whatever reason, then all VRPS for prefixes overlapping the resources issued to them in their CA certificate for said publication point should be filtered out.

Note that most RP software already implements SLURM - and this kind of post-validation filtering can be done in a very similar way.

It is important to only do this for VALID CA certificates with invalid publication points. This is what I said above, but I just want to be overly clear here.. because if one would start doing this for invalid over-claiming CA certificates then this would of course open a wide vector for people to DoS legitimate statements about other people's address space.
