DIDs available by satellite. A curiosity, an exploration.

To whom it may concern:

I have been wondering: Would it be useful to work on a solution that makes
DIDs resolvable anywhere on the surface of the earth with Satellites?

It does not seem broadband is needed, and when studying DIDs it seems like
only a small part of the time does one need to verify a DID for a
particular identity [1].

Thanks for your time,
