Stephen asked:

> (13) 10.9 says that the client MUST verify the server's cert which is fine.

> However, does that need a reference to e.g. rfc 6125?

> Also, do you want to be explicit here about the TLS server cert and thereby

> possibly rule out using DANE with the non PKI options that that WG (may)

> produce?

Can someone help with this? I don't know enough to address.
