+1 for declaring it "out of scope."

Yep. But if a reasonable person who hasn't been involved in the SSP
arguments reads the draft and immediately concludes that it /does/ alter
or replace their local policy decisions, they'll grumble and stop
reading and get back to doing real work.
So, my suggestion would be to mention that any decision about whether to
accept, reject, or print out and chew on a particular message is left
entirely to the verifier -- and may involve external sources of
information. (This latter portion is to forestall the inevitable
accusation that DKIM does nothing to prevent spam.)
