Should we, as a community, register with RIR's with PGP. And
use special keys for resources?

The only people to have the keys would be the end user/ISP and
the RIR.

Forged PGP can be done but not so easily.

Basically email is so easy to forge should we not do what
we do everywhere else and just add security? or ACL's or
a firewall or.......
