Actually, since those are relatively inexpensive, I suspect there are plenty of people who’d be willing to cover those costs, if they needed to be paid separately.  However...

…the RPKI costs are many orders of magnitude higher, and that’s before anyone sues us.  So, the question is how much of your fees you want to see going toward RPKI, and how much of that you want to go toward trying to make it functional, versus mitigating the risk when it’s not.
