WebID-ISSUE-62 (certificate_authorities): null certificate_authorities list

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/webid/track/issues/62

Raised by: Henry Story
On product: 

When the Server requests a client certificate from the server it should ask for the Null certificate_authorities list, allowing the browser to send any certificate it wishes. 

This needs to be added to spec, including information about the fact that this is possible in TLS - see the old thread on foaf-protocols where Bruno Harbulot discussed this. 

The other thing to discuss is if it is possible then to create a well known DN for WebID that all WebID clients could claim to be signed by.
