That will entirely depend on the degree of adoption ;-)

Honestly, I see the Mozilla guys taking the lead here and probably
establishing a trust model that the actual TLD operators don't want
that way. When established (through upgrade to current Firefoxes),
it will definitely "rule", whatever the TLD operators do, until
an understanding between the supplier of the widespread tool (FF)
and the "autorities" has been established.

Application manufacturers can set de-facto standards if their
product is widespread enough.

The problem I see here - for the TLD operators - is that there are
more applications/manufacturers than available hands at the operators
to make cooperation even possible...
