Subject: Re: submitted on behalf of Igor Balabine....... CPA and overrides


Please let's discontinue this thread. It is meaningless
as the meaning of "discard" could be anything from obliterate
the bits from existance" to "log it, place the message in suspense
and deal with it out of band". The key for me, and I believe
what Igor was trying to convey is that it is up to the
receiving party's security policies to determine the course of
action to be taken.

Note that the spec doesn't say anything about what you do when
you receive a message that is incorrectly signed, so the point
is moot.

Let's focus on real issues please.
