[messaging] One CONIKS or many?

There has been a lot of discussion on tor-dev about integrating CONIKS
into tor messenger. They seem to have that pretty much under control,
but I'm wondering if it would make sense to have one public federated
CONIKS service that multiple messaging services could all use. This
way we have auditing code and server code for everything, together
with ways to extract keys and manage accounts.

Why is this an utterly terrible idea?
