If posting via the RFC NEWSREADER, the NNTP Server will transform the NNTP article to EMAIL.

Yes, that is the interesting case. A news2email gateway is, from the POV of this WG, just another agent for generating emails (and as such it is on topic if it raises special problems). The fact that it came from NNTP is an irrelevance, *except* insofar as it may introduce an unsigned message whose From/Sender/whatever is from a domain that claims to sign everything. That is something we may need to worry about.

Gatewaying from newsgroup is a case equivalent to email coming from mail list.

Neither one the designers of DK[IM] are particularly interested in dealing with as is evident in previous discussions in regards to "3rd-party" policy considerations or 3rd-party signers.
