i am less sure of that. tim's metarouting algebras do not seem to lack
expressiveness. they just allow us to define policy languages that do
not let us express stupid things.

i am not sure global consistency requires global homogeneity. it is more
likely to require some visibility/transparency which maybe the folk
doing partial-reveal crypto have a leg on.
but, interesting as this is, i fear we have drifted a bit afield from
describing hacks to allow us more control of what moves from our ears to
our ribs and then what fibs we tell.
