it would be a kindness, under those circumstances, if you could qualify
your proposal with words like "heavyweight" or even "statically config'd
infrastructure devices such as caching resolvers" and then mention a need
for a lighter weight mechanism for mobile, handheld, or only-periodically
connected devices.

is it also the case that your proposal is just for early deployment, or
do you anticipate that this key management will be a permanent feature?
