I (and Ben, and a few others) are all too familiar with the ARIN madness
around their TAL.

Simple - we just don't accept it, which means our networks will be
unsafe against North American resources. Highly doubtful my organization
is that interested in how the ARIN region may or may not impact our
interest in deploying RPKI on this side of the planet, when the rest of
the world are less mad about it :-).

This policy was broken in 2014. And it's still broken in 2020.

Ah well... we keep moving.
