Please don't jump to a conclusion. :-)
Many people discussed in many places many times. Some thought the same
as you. Some enumerated and categorized semantics. If time allows, I'd
suggest read the archives of pem-dev ml and ietf-pgp-mime ml.
As you said, there is no spec to define the syntax of multiple
signature. One spec (without semantics definition) is better than
It is fine to me that you will define syntax only, and leave semantics
to applications. I like such slow start since we should not repeat the
I'd suggest that your ID should keep the door open for future
definitions of semantics.
