That you verify them later? That happens quite often. Nobody verifies
them directly. Haven't seen a single person doing that. I have a real
world situation that actually happened to me: I know someone from the
Gajim MUC. We always used E2E, as this is the default. When we met, we
verified each other. So we know all our past conversations have not
been compromised.
