I agree that the two scenarios exist.

Are you suggesting the second case would only contain the signature on
the certificate?  Can you extrapolate further on your thoughts?

Subject: More musings, registration

It occurred to me that there are intrinsically two types of XKMS

1 Initial registration of a key pair
	Alice generates a key pair, registers it, gets back a cert

2 Secondary Registration
	Alice submits her previously issued certificate to the XKMS
service that supports her ISP's Locate directory. 

It occurs to me that in the second case the request might simply depend
on the signature in the certificate.
