Last version, so *-10 (which has RFC Ed Queue status).

OK. At first, I am not a PKI expert. Now, from what I understand (PKI
experts, please, don't hesitate to correct me :)):

RPKI is based on SPKI, meaning you don't care who is the owner of the
certificate (i.e., DN) but you only need to know an entity is allowed
to provide a service. This is not the case in a classical PKI (i.e.,
applications check DN in the cert).

RPKI is used to certify resources (i.e., AS and Prefixes). The Trust
Anchors (i.e., CA) are normally the RIRs. So, in a SEND deployment,
the hosts should only store RIRs' certificates to get
