Are you expecting a functionality like the following?

  => Measure keys added to keyring "foo", but exclude certain keys 
(based on some key identifier)

Sample policy might look like below:

action=MEASURE func=KEY_CHECK keyrings=foo|bar
action=DONT_MEASURE key_magic=blah

So a key with key_magic "blah" will not be measured even though it is 
added to the keyring "foo". But any other key added to "foo" will be 
measured.

What would the constraining field in the key may be - Can it be SHA256 
hash of the public key? Or, some other unique identifier?

Could you please clarify?

thanks,
  -lakshmi
