	use of a single RR has almost never been a good idea... 
	not since RIPE first split out of the RABD, 13 years ago.
	that said, several of the RIR's are planning/testing a 
	new suite of tools to do crypto-authentication of route objects
	(the IETF SIDR work).  APNIC might be in beta as early as 
	this year and I think ARIN will be doing some trial work 
	in 2h09. ostensibly, this will be a much stronger toolset
	on which to base route accuracy/acceptance.  You might 
	want to ask about it at the upcoming ARIN mtg in LA... Its
	right after the NANOG mtg.
