So, a lot like dnssec ... if you enable the RPKI functions (publish roas) I
think it's very much a responsibility of the publisher to provide the
correct information in an on-going and stable manner.

This seems bad, at first blush, but you will not always be here to offer
these recalcitrant folk a pointer to how to fix themselves, and TODAY
there's: "little" penalty when it comes to getting this RPKI thing
wrongly... So, ideally the folk who are 'doin it wrong' can learn, get
operational proceses/procedures/personnel in place and take action for the
long term... right? :)

sorry, 'most' emails that mention RPKI are: "how much do you like the
flavor of rpki?" :)

This I still think is a bad plan.. mostly because I don't think it'll help
I think what helps is: "Oh, I cant get to <foo> and <bar> and <most of the
internet>" .... I think folk that CARE will do the right thing, folk that
'think they care' won't and will soon get disconnected from the tubez.

I apologize a tad if my view that: "breaking people will force them to fix
themselves" is .... rough :(

Even if one dislikes RPKI entirely the opinion could still be "yes
