However, in that case Brian's latest content model [1] precludes the ability
to use a SubjectName and Cert within one X509Data. Consequently, I've
removed the SubjectName so the spec has valid examples -- and leave it to
you and Brian to resolve what you want for the content model.

This change means that an individual X509Data clause may be one of:
a) a collection of X509IssuerSerial, X509SKI and X509SubjectName elements,
b) exactly one X509Certificate element, or
c) exactly one X509CRL
