At one level, that's merely an implementation choice. At another level, it is a
question of whether conformance enforcement MUST occur at all.
The discussions have tended to assume that it MUST occur, by virtue of the DKIM
requirement for 'conformant' messages. Steve's point cleverly suggests that
DKIM itself can dodge the issue by -- once again -- having things simply rest on
I find the simplicity and sufficiency of Steve's point pretty darn appealing.
To emphasize: It's sufficient because it focuses on DKIM's actual goal and does
not expand that scope.
