To me, this reads a bit like you're still trying to shut down the
discussion here.  Perhaps I am misreading it.

Upthread, you basically said that we shouldn't talk about key
management (specifically, you said, "Key management is an entirely
independent discussion from this") which I think is a ridiculous
statement.  We have to have some kind of simple key management in
order to have the feature at all.  It does not have to be crazy
complicated, but it has to exist.
