Other than pending patents and a cool name Secure BGP, you still have
the fundamental problem.  Garbage In, Garbage Out.  The only difference
is now you have Secure Garbage(tm).

There is a problem that needs to be solved.  But like the whole
micro-payments, SET, etc thing; if the solution is more complicated and
more expensive than the alternatives; it won't get used no matter how
"secure" it is.
