Back in October 2004, Google started playing with Yahoo's Domain Keys anti-spam technology.  I'm not sure what ever became of that test.  What I do know is that sometime on Saturday March 4, (2006), Gmail started adding Domain Key data to the headers of Gmail.com-generated email that wasn't there before.  Here's a whole new text block that didn't appear in the header of Gmail.com-generated emails that arrived in my inbox prior to 3:30pm ET on 3/4:

=== BEGIN TEXT BLOCK =====

Maybe this isn't news. Or is it?
