at one point in early discussions, there was a suggestion that the signature validity period expire in 2040,
after the unix epoch.   the thinking was, the # of conversions that would need to be done then would make it
an ideal time to also roll the keys.

and in some alternate universe, that might make lots of sense.

RFC 5011 does make certain presumptions.  The nature of what it means to be connected and what, if any,
field upgrade capability exists have changed.  So will you acknowledge O’Dells law or not?   Will those of you who 
have a dog in this fight want regular existence proof that the backup plans work or not.  (The data center analogy of
regularly testing the backup generators comes to mind.)  

Mike has drilled down on a very good point re emergency rollover.
