I think there will be cases where a signer chooses to make their UAID
semantics known to assessors specifically for assessment purposes. How
the signer might communicate that to the assessors is out of scope for

approach individual assessors/mailbox providers. If it proved useful and
was worth doing on a larger scale, then we could figure out a way to
make the signer's preference automatically known to assessors.

suggest that the mail system make the assessment? I like the concept, but
don't see how it can be implemented given the defined syntax/semantics.
