Randy, we have an operational need to separate the existing single TAL
into its discrete components for each source, so we can have production 
certificates for each source, so that we can ultimately have them signed
under their appropriate parent registry,

Once there is a global trust anchor, you can validate the 5 APNIC operating
CA under a single root, single TAL. Until then, an APNIC TAL is necessary.
