There was a time when I was a DD but didn't have an @debian.org address,
because I didn't want it, nor the responsibility for accounts on
debian.org machines. So, yes, I'm all in favor of checking keyids
instead. :)

Something like this would be preferable for me: I enter my info into a
web form, including my e-mail address. Comas puts it aside and sends the
e-mail address a confirmation request. When I reply, Comas knows the
e-mail address works and all is well. If I need to edit things later,
the same procedure will work again.

I'm not suggesting this be done for Debconf7, but it might be something
to think about for the future.

Without grand dreams, how can you save the world?
