Re: going back to stone axes
at the moment, I'm on the sidelines of this debate, and am also pretty
convinced that it's seriously preventing SPKI from doing serious work,
so chipping in was probably a mistake.
But just my $0.02:
I had an experience where the fact that ASN.1 strings are by default
infinite-sized made us add SIZE fields to a specification. Which then
showed us that we didn't have consensus on the upper limit; some people
thought 256 bytes; other thought at least 1 Kbyte.
That's the only reason why....
