Well, I had some concern that my NM application would be rejected
because my old key (which is the key currently used for the NM
process) is signed by only one person total. There's also the issue
that my old key is not the recommended strength (it is a 1024 key). My
new key is signed by at least one DD, as well as several other people.

I see someone else recently had their application rejected for reasons
that relate to the situation I'm in. See [1].
