In one of the threads Russ suggested that we constrain the number of TNs in a range to be greater than two.  I haven’t seen much discussion on this so I went ahead and created an issue:
  https://github.com/stirwg/certificates/issues/3
and a PR to address the issue:
  https://github.com/stirwg/certificates/pull/6/files

What do people think?  Personally, this change makes sense to me; it’s providing instructions to the compiler with no bits-on-the-wire changes.
