I can't answer that - it depends what system we're talking about, and
AFAICS we're not yet talking about a specific system, just an idea - but
the idea is that whatever software holds keys for users also monitors logs
on their behalf.

Again, without a specific system design, its not possible to say. In the
proposal for end-to-end key management, I believe the current idea is one
log per domain. So, the s/w would be monitoring a single log in that case.
But, its still on the drawing board.
