Any data would be welcome, thanks!

Possibly, yes. Some of the data currently collected by the verifying side
are less interesting because they're constant (i.e. they're part of your
configuration), and arguably you're signing mail from a much more
constrained space than what you're verifying. That is, most of the mail
you sign will look substantially the same in terms of existing header
fields and the like.

But that doesn't mean the data aren't useful.

I think dealing with recording data about inbound mail will be enough of
an undertaking to have ready for v2.2.0 that this will probably be work
done after that's out and operating. We should definitely take a closer
look at it though.
