That may be, but I don't think general@incubator is the place to develop it.

FWIW for myself I like to back WOT paths by checking manually,
and feel best about it when I can identify a chain of trust involving only
people I trust to be savvy enough not to sign keys willy-nilly.
PGP/GPG support different levels of trust, so the model helps there.
