Is the goal of a spec, the writing of the spec itself, or to tackle a higher goal?
Are we forgetting the original objectives of DKIM, which was to reduce spam?
I hear a lot about what DKIM is not, fair enough. I hear a lot that DKIM is a tool and not a magic solution, fair enough too. But if we cannot show DKIM helps alleviating spam, then we better use everyone computing cycles for something useful instead.

What would that prove, or disprove?
