Comments on SPKI draft of 25 March 1997

On Question 5:

I am in favor of making the may-delegate field boolean (that is,
0/1 valued), as I can't see why someone might need more.  Certainly,
the security implications between  ( may-delegate 1 ) and ( may-delegate 2 )
are hardly crisp, since you are depending on your delegee to determine
who gets delegated to in either case (either directly by his own judgement,
or indirectly via his delegees).
