$ubject changed as it is now where to put the pointer

[ we have email suggesting putting the geoloc pointer in dns, routing
  databases, ...  no one has suggested bgp yet, but i assume it is
  coming ]

the draft discusses that, see sec 4 and the sec cons

i suspect 'simple' is not the term you want.  perhaps 'authoritative'

folk want to publish usefully now, and in fact are doing so.  this
scheme, admittedly a compromise, allows immediate incremental deployment
with optional authentication using the rpki; the best of both worlds.

also trying to minimize the silo bridging problem in large orgs

-------------- next part --------------

but, if you write a draft to put a geofeed pointer in the rpki, send me
an email, as i no longer read sidrops.
