Me too. I like it and figure it's good enough.

The only thing I'd suggest maybe adding is the illustrative goal
that an "apt-get install apache" should be able to get the required
certificates for a web server automatically, if there is an acme
server that is willing to automate that far. And that a subsequent
"apt-get upgrade" on that box should ensure that the certificate
stuff needed for that apache install gets renewed if necessary.

I can see that it might be tricky to phrase that in language
that works in a charter though, but maybe someone's feeling nicely
creative.

The reason to want this in (for me) is that I think that example
can ground the work and be useful to head off some potential rat
holes that might otherwise crop up. And it captures the by far
most important requirement for acme to meet which is good to keep
in front of us.

Cheers,
