Though again this is not a criticism of what is going on at NSTIC - can't be since I still have to read the paper. In any case it should be completely compatible with what they are doing: I don't think NSTIC has it on their plans to remove the Subject Alternative Name from X509 certificates.

Ok. I'll read the paper next.
