Certificate Authorities (CAs) managing CA certificates and End-Entity
(EE) certificates within the Resource Public Key Infrastructure
(RPKI) will also manage BGPsec router certificates. But the rollover
of CA and EE certificates BGPsec router certificates have additional
considerations for Normal and emergency rollover processes. The
rollover must be carefully managed in order to synchronize
distribution of router public keys and BGPsec routers creating BGPsec
Update messages verified with those router public keys. This
document provides general recommendations for the rollover process,
as well as describing reasons why the rollover of BGPsec router
certificates might be necessary. When this rollover process is
followed the rollover should be accomplished without routing
information being lost.

The document was well reviewed.
There are existing implementations - the 3 main versions of RPKI supporting software implement this.
