Wait, this is actually much better than the standard canary "We have not
received NSL yet".
In the standard canary case, a court can supposedly order you to lie. But with
such a short-lived (one-day) message of "We have not received an NSL during
the last 24 hours", published via RSS, a third-party could set-up a monitoring
website that automagically federates any such "canary feed", and as soon as
any of them has a single day of lack of suck message just mark it as "possibly
received NSL on <date>", or even "did not confirm that did not receive an NSL
The person that received the NSL can then be forced to keep publishing the "We
have not received NSL today" message, but the signal has been sent already,
and there would have to be a yet another NSL to the federation service
Bonus: the NSL can even make the original addressee publish "We have never
received an NSL", which would be even a stronger signal.
If there are several such operators, this becomes more and more non-trivial.
