The Usenix key signing is a good model for techie types, but
we are the minority.  How would the great unwashed have their
keys signed?

This looks like a business opportunity.  I think it may make
sense for somebody to establish a nation wide network of
Public Notaries who'd be certifying that the physical person
has this-and-that document (drivers license, etc) and has that
key.  A central office would maintain a registry of personal
keys.  We all could use the registry to verify the signatures.

Such certification could cost something like $10 per key.  I'd
certainly be willing to pay that much to have a certified key.
Given the potential customer base of 20-50 million, that would
make a nice business case.
