That's better for me but I'm still a little uncomfortable with the "by any 
means." Does this mean the XKMS service has an obligation to keep track of 
revocation lists at all times, and if it notes a revocation on a previously 
valid keybinding update the client? The way I thought it worked was that a 
response to a Validate request was a contemporaneous statement about the 
status at *that* time. If a CR is issued, and I encounter it during a path 
validation, the next time the request is issued, the status would of course 
not be the same. But this isn't any special sort of processing...
