Why?
It holds an Address. A URL. A URI functioning as a Data Source Name with 
one level of indirection as opposed to > 1 level of indirection (which

By disambiguating Name and Address in the certificate. The SAN holds the 
Name. and sIA the Address. This is simply for situations where the 
subject of the cert. can't place a full fidelity Linked Data URI in SAN.

Because you will ultimately quibble about its complexity.

Let's close here, as I need to get stuff implemented, and my team needs 
my attention.

You'll see the end product, as per usual via our implementation.
