Hi Rubens,

Last I checked, Merit was -really- expensive for RADB. I don't really
see getting more than about 5 figures total per year out of the legacy
registrants for RPKI, if that much. I think it'd have to be a
volunteer effort or something funded by someone who finds it to their
advantage that the legacy registrants publish RPKI records. Like the
way Letsencrypt is funded.
