I don't think there is a consensus on what a 3rd party signature is.
Oh, I disagree. As someone (Ian?) pointed out, there's some long-established
common use about what the term "third-party" means, and I don't think we need
to establish rough consensus on something like that.
For a message (not even specifically email) from A to B via C, A is the first
party, B is the second party, C is the third party.
The first several definitions I found via a simple Google search concurred.
Let's not waste time on this.
If that's the case, then we need to stop using the term "third-party
signatures" when discussing ADSP, as ADSP does not make any distinction that
maps on to the general used meaning of "third-party".
Perhaps we should use the terms "822from domain signature" and "non-822from
domain signature" to differentiate between the only two cases of valid
signatures that ADSP is concerned with.
