This adds one concrete DID URL matrix parameter.

Description: Identifies a set of keys from the DID Document by key type.

Example: did:example:1234;key-type=Ed25519VerificationKey2018

-1 to merging as is because I don't know what the purpose of this parameter is and because it seems like it would tend to produce a set of keys whilst losing their authorized purpose (which could be dangerous). It is also "key" specific, not allowing for other types (i.e., why not "type="?).

I don't understand the use case here... why can't you just write a function to go through the DID Document and fetch all of these keys?

I'm trying to understand where we'd put a value like this -- did:example:1234;key-type=Ed25519VerificationKey2018 ... like, we'd put it in a database table because we'd want to get the set of all Ed25519VerificationKey2018s, but I'm struggling to figure out why we'd put this value in a database table vs. just write a function to extract what we want from the DID Document?
