A notary?  It is a form of notarization maybe.

"I, Notary Technical, authorized as a Responsible Person, do hereby with
this digital seal attest that I have this day been presented with documents
indicating that the above entity exists as a social entity in the state of
_France_ and meets the requirements of http://peristence.org.2000/art54
including that the entity holds no other Persistent Domain. The entity has
before me this day made the commitment of non-reuse and grant of Persistent
Archive licence. Given that the entity
demonstrates ownership of public key
_"rsa:1024/uwdiuhewqiudhwehdwqieg[...]uewfhfw"_ and  demands the name
_"yetmorehotchocoloate.fr.2000"_ for which banns* have been called on the
conventional newsgroups for 30 days during which no prior conflicting banns
have been received,  is hereby granted that name.  50 Euro please!"



*banns as in marriage - decentralized request confirmation of uniqueness
