how is arin's problem here different from that which 'lets encrypt' is
facing with their Cert things?
Don't they have the same sort of problem as ARIN? "somoene trusted a cert
signed by LE for "thing" and got scammed/harmed/etc"

It seems odd, to me anyway, that this is seemingly so very different...
I also would like less friction in the RPKI process...I don't think it
serves ARIN, it's community nor the global internet community to make
things harder to secure/validate.
