Hi,

I originally suggested (in the mail thread referenced) the CertTemplate 
format from RFC4211, it has subject, issuer, serialNumber and extensions 
(basically a TBSCertificate).

Although the RFC says that serialNumber MUST be omitted, this is for 
certificate request purposes and can surely be redefined.

Don't remember if there were any other technical issues preventing a 
CertTemplate to be used?

Cheers,
Tomas
