Actually, the TCG now terms it an "attestation CA" (see issue #610), tho one can argue that the latter is a TCG-specific name.  IIUC, what @balfanz et al are imagining would not actually impl the TCG-specified attestation CA protocol tho would be similar.  Perhaps the "attestation proxy" is a good name in order to avoid confusion with the legacy privacy CA (tcg-specific) name.
