Hi George... I had to strip your HTML so I hope I got the gist of your

Could be. Again, that's up to the user. I'd suggest that if a user
wanted a long term relationship like:

  photo site -> blog

then they'd be granting that cert for a long time. They'll also be able
to turn the cert off at any time.

I'd hope that if certificates take off in anyway we can come up with
more protocols, this time for distributing certificates automatically.
