I'm not fond of that decision either, but at this point it is how it
is. We already have the operation of inter-RIR reverse DNS
synchronization since each /8 is not single-RIR anymore, and I believe
a similar mechanism could have allowed for a single RPKI root.

But I note that the 0/0 trust anchors preceded IANA transition to PTI,
and that even after the transition, we still have an organization that
doesn't have jurisdictional immunity in the US to prevent possible
petty challenges to the system. So the world at large still benefits
from the multiple trust anchor design, when all trade-offs are
accounted for.
