Yes, this will be the next challenge. But at least will be a social
challenge only.
Currently nobody talks about any agreenment because the technical
plumbing does not allow you to even think about it. Elektra is not the
turn key solution. Its impossible to have one in this bazar. It takes
time. Elektra at least makes it possible to start thinking about it,
but to solve the end problem requires a lot of discussions like this,
which is good.

It is a step forward in a long walk. And in my opinion its very
non-intuitive why converting it in keys makes this walk start. This is
normal, and this is why we need a lot of discussions.
