in the first instance it can't have an effect on pki.
pki with OpenPGP and S/MIME are two separate worlds.
Nonetheless this is a really important issue and
besides technology issues concerns social/economic
aspects in pki concepts.
It is far beyond the scope of Ägypten to develop concepts
for combining pki approaches behind OpenPGP and S/MIME.
Perhaps we can convince authorities to invest in
neutral research towards sensible pki :-)
