There have been several "next generation" protocols that have been
proposed for keyserver syncronization. All of these assume that the
current "best practice" will not scale due to the limited bandwidth and
disk storage capacities of the volunteer keyserver hosts. If we can assume
that sufficient bandwidth and drive space/server power is available to us
(which it looks like you believe, Randy), then I think that we should
simply go ahead and document the current practice and formalize it.
