hi,

the topic of using CN from the certificate came up quite often lately.
wouldn't it be a good idea to extend the cert ontology [1] somehow to provide
official classes and predicates for the contents of a certificate besides the keys.

since a WebIDPrincipal [2] is more or less a graph, i could add these certificate-triples 
to the WebID and users of the WebIDRealm can display whatever they want to display : 
foaf:names, cert:issuedTo ?x => ?x cert:commonName...
