Jay is touching upon a very important aspect here: without the RPKI ROA
it would've taken NTT significantly more effort to decide whether
removal of the erroneous IRR route object would've been appropriate or

nature. Keep in mind that ROAs are not just for BGP Origin Validation
but serve other useful purposes too. Publish your ROAs today!

Kind regards,

TAL is not as well distributed as RPKI TALs from other RIRs; this
essentially has lead to a degradation of the quality of ARIN's RPKI
service. This policy proposal may help address operational issues:
