Section 3.4 of RFC 3125 talks about Commitment Rules, and it specifies the following structure:

   CommitmentType ::= SEQUENCE {
        identifier                      CommitmentTypeIdentifier,
        fieldOfApplication      [0] FieldOfApplication OPTIONAL,
        semantics               [1] DirectoryString OPTIONAL }

However, CommitmentTypeIdentifier is never defined.  Is it an object identifier?

Can anyone point to a public signature policy that uses the SignaturePolicy defined in RFC 3125?
