I'm not sure I've provided enough context to fully explain the
proposal. The idea is not to _require_ anything, but to only ask for
confirmation if people make the claim _themselves_, and then only for
people in positions of trust, or those whose credentials have been
called into question. Anyone is free to reach any level of trust
without professional credentials.
Peace & Love,
