I don't think people will look at even the class, and definitively not
to legacy or non-legacy partitions.
They will either drop it all, or not drop it at all.

Note that when the only IP blocks that spammers and abusers can inject
in the system are non-signed ones, those blocks will get bad
reputations pretty fast. So the legacy holders use case for RPKI might
come sooner than you think.

Discarding RPKI-invalids is something you can do right now and that
doesn't come with a price tag. Good BCP38 and RPKI-invalid hygiene is
the thankless gift you can give to the community.
