It doesn't have anything to do with query serialization method.
RADB is a kludge forcing ISPs to make their routing infrastructure to
depend on an external and centralized resource, and introducing an extra
step (which takes non-negligible amount of time) to their customer
The better way of dealing with the problem of bogus routes is strong
authentication of the actual routing updates, whith key being allocated
together with the address block. Solves unused address space reclaimation
problem, too - when the key expires, it becomes unroutable.
I always thought that RADB was a temporary band-aid, but it seems that
there was no progress in the field for quite a few years.
Unfortunately, trying to do some new stuff in the field is nearly
impossible - when VCs hear "backbone routing" they slam the door.
