Docker is a container.
ROS is not just a web server or some app to be run in a container.

It is heavily dependent on its kernel to implement many of its features.

So my guess is that there will never be a docker image for ROS.

This is not a Docker image for ROS but for OpenVPN.

Not to mention that it hasn't been updated for over 4 years.

IMHO, ROS on Docker (or any other container platform) is a waste of time.

Like written above, this request doesn't make any sense.
Docker is used to run applications.
RouterOS is an operating system.

Use CHR images.

What would be great is (in v7) is to be able to run docker containers so that we can run custom applications :)

Docker relies on the "parent" OS to have all the necessary stuff. RouterOS doens't have any stuff to rely on. Maybe I'm mistaken, not sure if RouterOS kernel is enough.
