Is the issue about eliminating certificate + associated private key 
stores in the browser or abstracting this critical component so that 
users have the options that include:

1. Native OS key store
2. Browser store
3. Some other store
     - DBMS (Relational Tables or Relational Property Graph)
     - Password Protected PEM file
     - USB device
     - etc..

The concept and the implementations are distinct things. Here we are 
dealing with the concept of "key storage and access".
