A scenario that is missing from the v02 of the document is the ability to scan outgoing messages. Plasma offers a huge improvement over current S/MIME implementations. This capability is definitely of interest to organizations who want to know what information is leaving their security boundaries via email. I recommend adding it as an additional scenario to the document and would be willing to help write it up if needed.
