The Alleged Type
There is a conventional standard order code on Keykos objects.
The numeric order code is 0x80000000 which is symbolized most places as “kt”.
It asks the object roughly what it would like to be seen as.
There is a documented list of types.
There is of course no guarantee of the truthfulness of the response from a newly acquired key unless you trust whoever handed it to you, in which case you need not ask the object.
The objects that we implemented did not change their internal state upon such a query, but that also is a mere convention.
Under broad circumstances an authoritative answer can be had via the brand which ultimately uses the domain tool logic in the kernel.
