Given the importance of the event, it would seem to me that it would be appropriate for attendance of all observers/participants to be mandatory (if someone isn't able to come for whatever reason, e.g., they've disappeared, that person/entity's role should be reassigned prior to the ceremony). As such, M of N would imply that you could have non-unanimity in the creation of the KSK. This strikes me as a really questionable situation to get into. Given the relative rarity of the KSK generation event, I am unclear as to why the added complexity of M of N is beneficial. Could someone explain? Thanks, -drc
