Exactly. There is no confusion about the potential to have varying results
based on a reputation model.

Of cause, so if its so fuzzy and subjective why did you start this thread by
answering the question "what is the purpose? indicating it will be part of
some out of scope reputation test?
I don't expect the same result with reputations - thats the point. Its a
subjective concept and it really has nothing to do with the mechanics and
physical attributes of the DKIM protocol.
What if the DKIM message is not signed? How does reputation play a role
now? Are you thinking everyone is going to use some common DKIM related
reputation system like DAC with some inherent "No Signature" reputation
no sign + domain part of DKIM reputation database ====> failure
Sounds like a SSP concept to me? Oh I see. Just the wrong one.
