Regarding arbitration keys:
We can use the current hard coded keys and later once the DOA side validation of arbitrators is implemented we can use the EC key of the input for the arbitrators bond. This data is always available alos if an arbitrator has revoked and the bond is unlocked. We will need to support then both implementations, thought the current one is rather trivial. It is also questionable if we need to repeat that initial trust distribution from the arbitrators side if there are enough trusted traders who give further the trust to new users.

Another aspect to consider is how we treat new users getting verified by trusted traders. Once their account is mature they can act as signers for others as well. Should be consider then levl 1 trusted or increate the hierachy they further they get away from the original trusted traders? As the initial trust distribution from the arbitrators does not give much more security than later when a traders account matured and he is enabled to sign others, I think we should not add complexity by multiple layers and treat all the same. The main security parameter is the time we want to wait before we consider an account safe.
