The point of the wildly over-engineered root key signing ceremony is
to build trust by publicly demonstrating at every step there is no
opportunity for intentional or accidental badness to occur without
being noticed.

at some point, long passed, the more pomp, the less safe i feel.  there
is protecting against technical/engineering threats and protecting
against layer 8 through 11.  through complexity, it compromises the
technical protection to go overboard on the lawyer defense.

from this bottom feeder's pov, icann, verisign, doc, ... are too often
the layer 8 through 11 threat than part of the engineering solution.

In any event, if you haven't already I would encourage you to provide
comments at the URL Joe referenced.

definitely.  after all, commenting on icann insanities has had such
serious beneficial effect for the good of the internet in the past.
