It was me this time, but it certainly has been thought of before.

Right, still no satisfying answer. :-/

Given that the current RSA state isn't so useful for ensuring
fairness (as Colin has laid down), are there other infra-
structures needed/ possible to offer more fairness/ trust?

If so, who'd decide what is legal and produce blessed binaries?
Without an agreement this would eventually end up with the
infra- structure providers, like domain owner, server owners.

As much as I appreciate the current infra-structure, if there is
no clarification on this part, we might need others.

My suspicion, too.
