I concur. In general, I think we are going to have to avoid any central
dependency for anything at all. I don't yet know how to reach that, but
it's not something we should compromise on. Otherwise the central
dependency is going to be a single point of failure, and taking out that
will make all freedom boxes become useless with a single strike, and
that's not good.
