OK, I misunderstood what you meant.

But, as I mentioned earlier, my email provider would be separate from my WKD
server. So, compromising my server with a private key causes a large break in my
security (potentially without my knowledge). Whereas, without a private key, if
they don't also have access to my email provider or DNS, they would find it
difficult to do anything more than be a nuisance.
