This might not be related but I think that we have confuse DKIM in the last 5-8 months with these "layman" constructs when really what we should be distinguishing it with as "Technical Constructs" such as:

     "The EMAIL SENDER signs everything"
     "The EMAIL OWNER/AUTHOR signs everything"
     "The LIST SERVER signs everything"

At last! You have recognized the real problem. According to whichever of these situations is relevant for the particular case, you need to look at the From, or the Sender, or some List-*, or whatever else header.

Now, are you proposing, suggesting, hinting, a new possible technical constructs for NEWS?

     "The NEWS SERVER/DOMAIN" signs everything"

That might come some day, but for the forseeable future I think we have to plan without that one.
