All of the concrete CredentialResolver impls fundamentally have this
capability, by virtue of inheriting from
AbstractCriteriaFilteringCredentialResolver, and the filtering happens
automagically if the right kind of criteria are supplied (those that
either are or can be mapped to a Predicate<Credential>).

As I just mentioned in my longish reply, the KeyInfo at issue here was
the metadata KeyDescriptor/KeyInfo.  I don't *think* Marvin's
conclusions here were quite correct, as I believe there would not have
been any Credentials extracted from metadata to filter.
