Although techincal folks may think its just about math, unfortunately some
people think certificates and signatures mean more than just mathmatical

will be willing to "certify" transitive trust relationships about business
relationships between third-parties.
Given that ISPs even refuse or manipulate their AS objects to hide real peering or transit details for business reasons, getting them to sign certificates for these relationships might prove even harder...
