Then please stop making this point in this way, as this has nothing
whatsoever to do with Palladium.  In the Palladium scheme, there is
generally no per-transaction check with a central source and the
originating authority does not make any certification whatsoever about
the good standing of the target machine.

Your point is sound and worth making, but it has nothing to do with
Palladium and it will become discredited as people figure that out. marcs
