Summary: Ready

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments: Looks fine from a non-security-expert's
perspective. It is my duty to ask about keyid in section 2.1:

      A "keyid" parameter SHOULD be a UTF-8
      [RFC3629] encoded string, particularly where the identifier
      need to appear in a textual form.

I presume that simply means "might need to be rendered" and does not
include "might need to be typed in by someone", correct? The former is
easy; the latter probably requires a bit more text.
