I see your point.
I think the note saying about "not-obvious" is generally true, but we
do have a pretty strong mail system insight to have a top DKIM strategy.
For me, dependent of DKIM, the end game in a heterogeneous mail
network was always about WYSIWYG and the ability to reply back, so:
- end to end persistency expectation, i.e. WYSIWYG, and
- transport (network controls) persistency expectation.
The note does reflect this in show many words and in mixed strategies,
but there should be one top DKIM strategy that offers the best
technical and DKIM results.
If that can be stated in 6.5, I agree the 6.4 note would become redundant.
