you should and reason is simple. they changed the way it was. :)

if it was previously 'fully trusted' and some dap decided to change it to
'ultimately trusted' and there is no longer a 'fully trusted' option, then
there should be in upgrade something to read in what was 'fully trusted'.

this is one of the many problems with programmers who use 'high level'
programming. their minds and thinking are not up to level of what they use.

why should someone have to define their own key?

why make a difference in classification of 'fully' and 'ultimate'?

if you are checking keys and verify that they are good, then they should be
good. unless there is a flaw in how you verify. which is something in respect
to what poc was talking about indirectly in another thread.

only true way to know that a key is good is to get it from other person
and they properly identify themselves, or from someone you know and can
be fully trust.
