EIP: Authenticated Whisper Broadcast Messages

I like the idea of the Whisper Wire protocol, so I extended it to add security features and described a way for smart contracts to emit authenticated broadcast messages:

I am very confused by the name choice for the protocol. I don’t think “whispering” is an accurate name for a global broadcast. Additionally, I was first drawn to this project because I thought it was written by Whisper Systems, and now I don’t think they are related at all.
