         Mathematical Mesh 3.0 Part VII: Mesh Callsign Service
                   draft-hallambaker-mesh-callsign-00

Abstract

   The Mesh Callsign Registry is a name registry that provides a mapping
   from human-friendly callsigns to root of trusts and a service
   assigned by the callsign holder to service the account bound to that
   callsign.  An append only sequence authenticated by means of a Merkle
   Tree and periodic third party notarizations provides ground truth for
   the integrity of the registry and for all the assertions enrolled in
   the sequence.
