Another thought... If the FD maintainers wanted to include the fingerprint of their self-signed cert or CA in the monthly list charter email, it might be archived in dozens of places around the internet and allow those who actually care about SSL security to validate the certificate without having to rely on the CA gods in the sky to do it for them. Still not perfect, but better than the current state of things.
