a second separate concern I have about this I-D is the Security Considerations which seem to me to be weak.  I would expect more about the hazards of key pairs, keeping the private private, who is the TA for the chain, who generated the key pair and how.

I see a lot of private certificates and key pairs these days driven by the requirements of PC to connect to networks and suspect that there is a disaster there waiting to happen because the risks are not understood and believe that what is being recommended here may fall in the same category.

Dear OpsAWG,

As there has been no feedback, I have to assume that you think that
this document is **absolutely** perfect, and contains nothing unclear,
inaccurate or confusing. Franky, this surprises me - I'd thought that
the bit about the penguins was somewhat vague...

(Yes, this is just a thinly veiled attempt to try and get more review
and feedback :-))

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
of pants.
