Because this what the plugin folks all over the world actually do, I concur with Mountie: "The time is NOW".

There is (as you should know by now) also a proposal for this.  It's incompatible with most vendors' cryptographic platforms but that may be the price to pay when you want (?) to challenge proprietary one-purpose solutions with standards.  Nobody said it was easy either :-)

David, since you initiated the "web crypto craze", what's your take on this?
