I am not sure how adding an r= tag would help deciding whether a
specific d= domain has made a first-party signature on behalf of
Another way to avoid the i= fight is to design it out of ADSP
(leaving it in DKIM, if it can't be eliminated there).
ADSP is looked up for mail without a first-party DKIM signature.
In an ADSP without i=, the ingredients for the "first-party"
signature decision are:
1) DKIM signature check: Is the DKIM signature valid per DKIM rules
(this may or may not involve i=, but that is outside ADSP's scope).
2) First party check: Do rfc822.from and d= have the proper
relationship. This check is ADSP-specific.
If these checks fail, look up the ADSP policy for rfc822.from and
make a ruling.
