Hi Lloyd,

I should have removed the URL instead of citing it.

I am reading "SMTP" narrowly and did not consider DMARC as part of the space.

examples of DNSSEC-based applications are mentioned and there is the following:

    "The DMARC wg is working on higher-level use of DKIM and SPF."

The technology for those two specifications is mostly related to DNS.

Thanks for the URL.  I would say yes to the comment about tightly 
coupled.  I'd say that they are seen as the transport and you end up 
with other protocols being designed on top of that.
