TODAY IANA has an operational role in DNS, they don't have
an operational role in Internet routing.  This is certainly not layer
9, and most certainly the most fundamental change to the Internet
routing system that RPKI or similar systems would introduce.

To be clear: IANA and RIRs allocate or assign address space
today, they don't control any routing on the Internet (and their
own internal ASNs and IPs don't count).
