Within the scope of the current discussion I do not think that the 
current physical assess strategy is a problem.  I suggest thinking 
very carefully about "additional KMFs" before even floating that idea.

would blindly authorize.  The planned key roll-over is also about 
avoiding having to face such a choice.
