Thomas,

I imagine it won't make the draft, but I was wondering if you would  
be willing to add an informational section that outlined some of the  
trust decisions you would expect to see catalogued this way.   
Obviously decisions to trust certificates with some of: domain  
mismatch, self-signature, and expiry would be included, would other  
things?  Permission to open popup windows, set cookies, or use  
javascript?  And would you imagine it might include generic settings  
("allow mixed content in ssl") as well as site-specific ones?

I think it would help make the proposal more concrete for  
implementors, if they had a sense of what decisions in particular  
were implemented.  Please feel free to assume all necessary caveats  
about non-exhaustiveness and moving-targets - I'm not asking for a  
legal document, just seed ideas.

Cheers,

Johnathan
