As a related aside, my company (Digital Bazaar) has been working with
U.S. Customs and Border Protection on the use of Verifiable Credentials
and Decentralized Identifiers for goods entering the US.

They would be in charge of processing the Verifiable Credentials that
would be issued for the "Cross-Border Transfer of Service Dogs and
Comfort Animals" use case. I'd like to gauge the level of interest from
them, chase down who we might talk to about this internally at US CBP,
and see if there may be funding for APA (or some coalition within APA)
to pursue the use case.

I'm not promising a rapid cycle on this... my expectation is that it'll
take six months to a year to get to the right people and something
testable/deployable. It'll be slow because it's government, not because
of the technical challenge... but we should start now instead of waiting.

Who should be the contact person in APA for that specific use case?
