It does matter for resolution, but I'm not sure if it was intentional.
Ideally, the folks working on multiformat would be defining how to
represent this as a part of their multikey work they've laid out and
did:key method would pick that up off the shelf. Unfortunately, that work
appears like it's stalled so far and so the examples become the next best
thing for knowing how other people are likely implementing things.
