I'm in favour of using the raw keys; i don't think we save anything by
using hashes, since in most cases we'll have to provide the key as
well (and, if using hashes, as a separate blob).
I'm in favour of letting PolicyMaker programs handle complex queries;
the basic SPKI syntax should be as simple as possible.

And i'll agree.
