No, you can't re-encrypt them using 3.56, but nothing is stopping us from patching the loaders that do those checks.

At that point, we need to patch the appropriate checks and rebuild from the ground up. Lots of work, and beyond me, but there is no reason why it can't be done.
Personally, I think Team fail0verflow should lead the effort, since they taunted Sony with the whole "Epic Fail" and "we pwn you" garbage at the CCC Conference. They should back up their words with action.
Graf_chokolo and a hacker who must not be named would probably need to be involved, as well, as they may possess the keys needed.
In short, fail0verflow was right in some ways - Sony can't change the lowest level keys, but then failed to deliver those lowest level keys that we need. If we get those, it truly is game over for Sony... all they can do is make busy work for hackers to analyze and patch subsequent FW releases.
At this point, though, you undoubtedly are correct about the fact that people will not be able to update from OFW 3.56. People should avoid anything "fresh" from Sony from here on out.
