Subject: Re: [xri] subject sets (also sort of: Agenda for August 6, 2009 call)

Tying the authority segment of the subject to the CN of the signing  
cert is a trust model that works for LRDD.   It won't work for XRI or  
other things that may use XRD.

We do need a complete solution for LRDD but it shouldn't preclude  
other trust models for XRD.
