$ubject changed as it is now where to put the pointer
[ we have email suggesting putting the geoloc pointer in dns, routing

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

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