ACTION-585: Check on AA indicator

This action went back to Anna Zhang's review of wsc-ui: She had  
noticed that section 5.3 [1] refers to an augmented assurance  
indicator that doesn't appear otherwise in the spec.  While the  
indicator actually makes another appearance, that's in the security  
considerations piece [2], and doesn't help to address Anna's point.

To address this point, I think the following things need to happen:

- add a few words to 6.1.2 (identity signal content) that make it  
clear that AA-related signaling is subject to what 5.3 says.  (In  
particular, you *can* show site identity information if an EV site  
mixes in non-EV, but DV, content.)

- it's probably worthwhile to indicate the term "AA indicator" in 6.3,  
TLS indicator, as well.
