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

CA's will likely be the notary public of the future.  But what does 
that do to help us fight spam and *forged* spam today?

I'm not trying to discourage the use of PGP, just point out that
it is unlikely to solve the problem at hand.

Long term, yes, today, no.
