[ietf-dkim] Consensus point on ADSP

As I have said in the past, I can live with using d= instead of i= for ADSP implementation but I prefer i= from a standard perspective. The key thing for me is matching the "From" email address domain to a value (d= or i= works equally well for me) in the signature.
If we stay with i= then:
* We do not need the informative note in Jim's proposed substitute text.
* We provide a mechanism for private experimentation and testing of finer granularity using the full email address as some have expressed interest in. I'm not looking for this personally but I believe that the draft/RFC can accommodate these stated desires without causing any issues.
The only potential downside I see to sticking with i= is the assertion that some people might be confused by the format that looks like an email address but doesn't necessarily have to be an email address.
Domains publishing an ADSP "all" or "discardable" record undertake certain risks that are associated with such assertions. This implies that domains wishing to implement ADSP will impose constraints on how their mail is sent.
Not all domains are appropriate candidates for ADSP implementation.
