1.  Introduction

   This document explores, and makes recommendations for, timing of
   Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) publication of ROV data,
   their propagation, and their use in Relying Parties (RP), caches and
   routers.

   The RPKI supply chain from CAs to reach routers has a structure as
   follows:

   Cerification Authorities:  The authoritative data of the RPKI are
      published by a distributed set of Certification Authorities (CAs)
      at the IANA, RIRs, NIRs, and ISPs (see [RFC6481]).

   Publication Points:  The CAs publish their authoritative data in
      publicly accessible repositories which have a Publication Point
      (PP) for each CA.

   Relying Parties:  Relying Parties are a local (to the routers) set of
      one or more collected and verified caches of RPKI data which are
      collected from the PPs.

      Currently RPs can pull from other RPs, thereby creating a somewhat
