Dear Chris and all,
Thanks for your very informative posts.

Any pointers on where could I read more about this?  I know of the 
web-of-trust kind of model proposed for a CA-less signing model, but 
that too operates on giving higher levels of trust based on who signed, 
right?  How is the Android model different?  How would it work for websites?

Cheers,
Pranesh
