Hi Tommy,

KeyName is a piece of information for key binding along with  application
specific IDs. It also enables others to Locate or Validate the key using the
KeyName.

In the situation of signature verification, where a caller wishes to
validate a key using the KeyInfo in the signature, KeyName may be the only
clue for locating the key at the server side. Note that other application
IDs (for UseKeyWith) may not be readily available in such situations.

Using KeyName in the registration also allows us to handle ResponseWith
KeyName when requested.

I agree that we don't need KeyName for revoking and recovering a key if
definitive key binding information is provided through the UseKeyWith
element.

Regards,
Yunhao
