I tried looking around for some tutorials about notations, but could
only find minimal information ("it's a string in 'tag at domain=value'

IIUC in *my* policy I could specify that when signing a key I use
"ndk at mydomain=X" notation and that X=0 means "just checked the person
can access the given mailbox", X=1 means "at least 2 other persons have
confirmed that the same user used that email address for the last year"
and so on.

Is my understanding right? When I sign a key and use a notation, am I
actually signing *all* the identities associated with that key? Or just one?
