In my opinion the goals for the first round of stable releases is to do 
just _anything_ - and the least possible - which is usable for 

...where "usable" means being dead simple to use, and "least possible" 
implies *avoiding* complex challenges like handling outgoing privacy at 
all: Have the box only serve public stuff, and keep secret stuff to 
itself - not yet juggle with the many grey areas between that!

I suggest add directly to wiki what is believed to be best practices.  
Then we can discuss here a) what lacks best practices and b) if someone 
disagrees that the wiki properly reflects best practices.
