Certificate has it's own lifecycle
- key generation
- certificate enrollment
- revoke certificate
- verify certificate validaty (CRL or OCSP)
- renew certificate

and also have some other issues (access to X509 extensions, same origin
policy associated with certificate, password policy for keyStorage...)

I need to start discussion more for certificate related issues.
- we need to summarize the list of issues about certificate
- we need to set boundary that to which level of issues WebCryptoWG
