If RIPE (or a government official/court) decides the sanctions against Iranian LIRs prevents them from issuing number resources to said LIRs, they would just remove the delegation. They’d probably then issue an AS0 ROA to replace out given the “AS0 ROA for bogons” policy. In an hour or so these LIRs are now disconnected from the world.
1) there are other ways the black helicopter people can do their
business, this is but one new lever.
2) this is the sort of thing that local TAL / SLURM are meant to help 'fix'.
3) see the long discussions of this in the sidr/sidr-ops wg lists :(

Evil RIR would have to replace an existing ROA with one that explicitly makes a route invalid, i.e. issue an AS0 ROA for specific member prefix. This seems like a pretty convoluted way to try and take a network offline.

Evil RIR could only revoke a prefix from your certificate or your entire certificate, but again, your BGP announcements would fall back to NotFound and would be accepted.
