I think your question is fair if you are talking to the TWC CEO, but in
this case you are not and it’s disingenuous to pretend otherwise (which
you are attempting through your weak straw-man).

If ARIN isn’t capable of running RPKI or performing its function, which
perhaps we should infer from your talking points, perhaps we should all
transfer our resources out of region and dissolve ARIN?  I don’t think
that would suit the community needs though.

I (similar to Rob) have my own concerns about RPKI but do feel that
this is an ARIN specific construct/wall that has been raised without
action yet from ARIN.  The fact that the meeting was 2 months ago and
you have not acted/discussed with your counsel says everything I need to
know about the situation, your personal motives and your personal desires
for the outcomes.  I hope it doesn’t represent your employer and that
the ARIN Board brings it up with you.
