Depends who you ask. Some think applying the dns model to bgp (i.e.
within protocol) will ultimately place too great a burden on routing
hardware & associated 'state' infrastructure.  I tend to agree with
that position. Perhaps the model we ought to be considering is
something more akin to an external mechanism that automated systems
(i.e. things to crank out prefix-lists/as-path lists) could draw from
during 'refresh' periods, solely dedicated to authorizing prefixes
against origin asn and/or as path (or name your $permutation_here).

I.e. if said new system were to fail, it'd be great if it didn't
affect routing in any way (we can live with a few days of stale lists,
I think).

Greene/Schiller, pipe up - this is your torch, right?
