Hmmmm.... the authority could just be the primary key that the
third-party signatures are over. I'm not talking about the current SKS
keyserver network, but some still-to-be-created federated synchronizing
That authority could also authorize no longer sharing a particular third
party signature, I think. It might still circulate in the federated
network, but any time it rears its head again it could get ignored by
the revoked authorization (or more: authorization to revoke). "Ignoring"
might just mean not offering it to clients even though it's still part
of the federation for technical purposes.
There's a lot of chance for misunderstandings here. I started writing
something less ambiguous and stopped due to the amount of work :-).
