I sort of figured that the shaken/stir model that ( i happened to
propose in their first meeting) of:
  "get the originator (handset, ebony phone, call-warehouse) to
digitally sign the call initiation, propagate that through the network
to the receiver (so they could associate the
md5/sha256/cert-signature/etc with an identity, and let the receivers
decide: 'Not in my known callers list, no answer'"

was a great plan... that the folk in the room basically didn't
understand (or even want me to voice, actually)... It's a shame that
something like this wasn't created instead of shaken/stir. You could
check the signature at any of the hops, start failing calls earlier as
rates of completion didn't stay at some standard level. All sorts of
options would be available, and really the callers could be identified
(at least by endpoint) more quickly.

oh well. glad we got shaken / stir though? :)
