the RPKI should not be voluntary and RIRs (or companion organisations to maintain a registry/regulator split) should become addressing police officers using the RPKI sanction to keep people in line.
Given discussions I've seen in other venues, I suspect this is going to be ... challenging.
Sure, with the current makeup of RIR policy participants it will never get anywhere.
The people I see who most would like to get involved in numbering policy but can't for reasons of resources or accessibility are LE, regulators, governments etc. Add those to the mix and yes the landscape will change.
Could you clarify the 'reasons of resources or accessibility'?
This is not an easy area to get involved in as the discussions are complex, use extensive jargon, have long histories and there is an absence of easy ways to pick all this up. With those accessibility constraints, it takes a lot of time/effort for a new participant to get up to speed sufficiently to be able to engage properly. That's the resource constraints.
I think that allowing this to remain a barrier is bad for RIR policy development and a special effort should be made to help people overcome these constraints (again I'm sure some effort is being made, but not enough to have the impact needed).
