Off hand with a quick glance, I have a problem with:
CID Caller-ID - a Microsoft proposal for verification of email
CID or callerid stands on its on, Microsoft does not own this terminology.
Lets end this confusion now. Lets not feed it.
Here is the Federal Standard 1073C definition for CallerID
caller ID: A network service feature that permits the recipient of an
incoming call to determine, even before answering, the number from which the
incoming call is being placed.
I believe the more appropiate term for Microsoft proposal is to use its
acryomn, MCEP "Microsot CallerID Email Policy."

Subject: [spf-discuss] draft of email security glossary for review
As part of website for another project I'm currently working on email
glossary and would like to receive your comments if you see anything wrong
with text or would have any suggestions for others terms to be added. The
current draft text (which is NOT permanent location of this glossary) is
The actual glossary came from cryptography abbreviations glossary I had
included with MTA signatures paper which has been growing internally ever
since and is now a lot more general and not as much cryptography centric,
it does still tend to list abbreviations more then anything else.
