OMG, so much awesomeness... great work Orie!

I love this because:

* It is a simple, easy to explain (to ordinary folks) example.
* It is a simple, easy to explain (to developers) example.
* It is a simple, easy to study (for developers) example.
* It extends the base Verifiable Credential context in the right way.
* It's an interesting use of the Verifiable Credential spec in a new way
  that many of us probably had not considered.

... and most importantly,

* The world is now safe from an entire entire class of Holiday Card
  interception and forgery attacks.
