Technical Summary

   migration considerations for DKIM.

Working Group Summary

   There are several areas where the document could provide more
   guidance, but the WG decided that more field experience is needed
   before we know what the guidance should be.

   of participants and vendors who have already implemented the DKIM
   protocols.  The document has been well reviewed by participants
   with implementation/deployment experience.
