Notary signatures

2002-04-25 15:07:20

RFC-1991 defined sigclass 0x40 as a timestamp, and went on to further
explain its intended use ("Type <40> is intended to be a signature of
a signature, as a notary seal on a signed document.")

When RFC-2440 came out, this extra explanation seems to have been
lost, as 2440 defines 0x40 only as a timestamp.  A sigclass for a
signature on a signature would be very useful.  Any chance to restore
this clarification in the next draft?
