Shouldn't it refer to:
  Subject Key Identifier

We can include the literal DER encoding of the the public key, if we want
a *KEY* here.

This is a hash of public key info. It was, again:


   This document specifies additional example methods for generating Key
   Identifier values for use in the AKI (Authority Key Identifier) and
   SKI (Subject Key Identifier) certificate extensions.

I think that domain-certificate-identifier could be specifying RFC7093 DER.
We have said DER and binary, and when translated to JSON, that results in
base64 encoding, and we sign that with PKCS7, I think.

Note that if we specify hash of public key, we have to use TLS
key agreement processes that include the public key itself. That's not a big
deal, but it would be wirth making sure that we can all of this for RPK.
