I don't know, that's why one designs for extensibility. Maybe some 
application will want to create its own ValidityInterval for it's given 
purposes. No, not everyone needs to support this, it's not in the "core" 
spec. While XKMS defines the core info and associated processing. I don't 
see the need to preclude applications from associating or asking for 
whatever data they want with a key binding.
