Re: KeyNote draft available

	 I think this document has serious flaws and should be recalled.

	 Thus, the document is misleading in its use of the word trust and
	 should either be changed throughout so that "trust" reads
	 authorization (for example) and correcting other logical problems or
	 should not be submitted to the IETF. In any case, it should be
	 recalled as it is.

As a procedural matter, anyone can submit a draft on more or less
anything to the IETF.  Drafts that purport to be from a working group
have a name beginning 'draft-ietf-<wgname>'; these, in general, require
the assent of the chair, which in turn is based on a number of factors,
including the status and direction of the working group.  This
particular draft is 'draft-angelos-spki-keynote-00.txt'; as such, it's
an individual contribution.  Over time, it may or may not become
a working group product; in any event, eventual publication depends
on approval by the IESG.  It's certainly relevent enough to spki
to discuss on this mailing list and/or at IETF meetings.  For now,
it's quite premature to speak of recalling the document; Blaze et al.
are certainly entitled to their own opinions.
