Right.

Accumulating use-cases is a fine thing to do. But, and it's a BIG
but, those additional use cases are only of interest if they don't
deflect or distract from meeting the primary goals of this work.
(Which the BoF and list determine of course.)

The IETF has messed up certificate management sufficiently often
that as an AD, (and as a past participant in messing this up;-),
I'll not be sponsoring work that I think is overly broad or that
lacks a laser-like focus on getting one or a few things done and
done well enough to see useful deployment.

Cheers,
S.
