3.3 - This fails to distinguish between an invalid
certificate (e.g. bad signature, unknown signer) and one
that is valid, but is not acceptable for this purpose.  I
don't get why that is ok for HIP, can you explain?  If it
is ok, I think you need to say so. If it is not ok (as I'd
suspect) then you appear to need to change text or one more
new error code.


Section 7 - I'm fine that this doesn't repeat stuff
from 5203, but a sentence saying to go look there too
would maybe be good. (I'm not sure if that would fix
Alexey's discuss or not. If not, then ignore me and 
just talk to him about his discuss.)
