Personally, I find checking a few other participants to be too weak an
assurance. I don't believe in security by numbers. If I'm dealing with
statistics, I want them to be on the order of "chance of one in 2^127".
You might recognise the chosen quantity :-). But everybody is free to
decide their own policy.

And checking at everyone would hold up the process; it's 64 hex digits
to verify!
