I'm assuming you are talking about public keys of a given WebID profile?
That won't for multi browser support, unless you either manage to generate
certificates with the same pubkey in all your browsers, or you use a
separate WebID profile for each browser.

Have you considered the reasons for allowing multiple SANs? [1] (there are
more) What's your reasoning for limiting it to one? I recall you had some
limitation from your library? Surely that is not the only reason I hope.
