Does anyone know what standard/documentation ARRL/LotW requires of 
a QSL manager in order to obtain a certificate for a station he/she 
might manage?  

For those DX stations with a traditional QSL manager, I don't see 
why the manager couldn't upload logs in any case ... for others, 
perhaps one way to deal with the requirement for documentation for 
foreign amateurs is for US (and other) registered individuals to 
serve as "on-line QLS managers."   

The US station could use his/her certificate to sign the certificate 
request for the DX station.  The DX station could send logs to the 
"electronic QSL manager" (signed with PGP or some other unique ID), 
the "on-line manager" could then convert the log to ADIF (if 
necessary), sign the ADIF and upload it to LotW.  

Although I do not have the time & resources to act as a traditional 
QSL manager, I would certainly be willing to act as an on-line QSL 
manager if such were possible.
