No not rare, I expect the opposite is true. :)

We might not be talking about it because many of us believe it's a
fundamental requirement for all of the reasons that you, Daniel, and
others have pointed out. We may have failed to record that tribal knowledge.

It's certainly a design requirement for the Veres One ledger... being
able to do the following query is vital "What were the keys associated
with DID X on date Y?"
