I am a little curious, just in case it's the sort of thing which might
crop up in diagnosing other things.

One of the other problems with living on Tatooine (Australia) is that,
to paraphrase, "if there's a brightest centre of civilisation, I'm on
the continent that's farthest from it."

So there's a (practical) limit to the extent of direct keysigning
which can occur following a face-to-face or other trusted and verified
out of band confirmation of identity and key control.
