[Ndn-interest] Trust hierarchy

Dear All,

I'm wondering how can I express a trust hierarchy other than a chain
using key locators.

Let us consider that I have 3 keys: A, B and C.

A is signed by both B and C.

Now, I use A to sign my data packet, so its key locator will point to A.

However, when I download A's certificate, will it include key locators
to both B and C?

If yes, are there any mechanisms to make it scale, or I have to download
all upstream keys?

If no, what should I do if the consumer trusts only B, but not C?
