Yeah, I think the reason why we have this extra argument there is that
we assumed there will be several key schemes. It is possible to add more
than one, but we use only one.

Since you have already spent your time for this, could you please check
if removing this 'c' makes the code smaller? If not, I'd prefer not to
remove it.
