Indeed; and as a Pythonista I am reminded of the second line in the
Zen of Python, “Explicit is better than implicit.”

That certainly applies here.

Now, if that and a final decision on key sharing within the protocol's
scope are the only real issues here, I'll be very happy (and somewhat
amazed with myself).

I'd rather be sure, though, so if you could find the time for a bit of
a closer look, I'd greatly appreciate it.  No doubt eventual end users
would appreciate it more, albeit without the concious recognition of
that (in most cases).
