Pardon my pissy mood, but maybe some of you could read the drafts, for
crying out loud?

This is NOT an issue. There is no need for solutions since this is NOT
a problem. There is a single entity that hands out SAIDs that are if
need be, keyed by destination address -- whether that is a single host
or some authority acting on behalf of a multicast group is immaterial.

This was already implicit in the scheme in the draft.
