Is it really that hard to engineer this solution? We do have several of them proposed (SBGP, soBGP, etc) and new WG is likely to be formed soon
within IETF to finally work it out.
It'd be darn difficult to engineer a solution that would end up being deployed in any reasonable time if we don't know the requirements first. Yes, there's a draft -- draft-ietf-rpsec-bgpsecrec-03.txt -- but it has been woefully lacking on the operator & deployment requirements. More people should participate in the effort.
