I wonder that 'DNS' does not do justice to what KeyID could provide.
You might have seen a while ago that Julian Assange acknowledged Namecoin's potential went beyond simple DNS.Julian Assange: I Told Google’s Eric Schmidt to Embrace Bitcoin
Speculation on bitcoin’s future
Assange also discussed the development of a decentralized alternative to the domain name system, a concept that has since served as the foundation for namecoin and other block chain projects.
“So this bitcoin replacement for DNS is precisely what I wanted and what I was theorizing about, which is not a DNS system, but rather short names [...] short bit of text to long bit of text tuple registering service. Cause that is the abstraction of domain names and all these problems solved. Yes, you have some something that you want to register that is short, and you want to couple that to something that is unmemorable and longer.”
I wonder that there is no talk here of KeyID/DNS being about version stamping, whether that be for text or I wonder any other content. Perhaps that would not be a matter of unique ownership of the version stamp but would be providing an option to have a unique reference that could act like a URL and perhaps then would see software that validates the content has not changed. For example, if the content of a webpage has not changed, how do you *know* that?
Has this been considered? What are the options here for that I wonder? If I wanted to version stamp this message, so that I could evidence the content had not changed, could I do that by parsing the content through KeyID and finding a unique stamp for it?.. Perhaps for a fee.. I'll take
for the idea!
