Let me say first thank you to Damien and Andre, because I want to make it
short and therefore sorry for not replying to your messages.

Your are right, but we all know what happened to the SKS Network and
we know also that Hagrid is perfectly fine for privacy and once a hockeypuck
Network is in operation users will appreciate it too.

The point for me is WKD exists and can be used as an cheap inhouse
solution, for families or organizations, if it would allow cost effective
wildcard subdomain support for SSL certs, which IMHO can not hurt
and if the direct method would be triggered first.
