There is some interesting work going on in the TLS WG,
which should allow a client to specify that the certificates
requested for example contained a Subject Alternative Name
or an Issuer Alternative Name in the form of a dereferenceable
URI . We'd just need to specify an OID for an extension, which 
in  our case could just be set as a flag I suppose (I don't
have much expereince with extensions and OIDs)


This would allow us then to close 

Simultaneously on the HTTP WG there is an interesting discussion
of what if any problems HTTP/2.0 poses for TLS authentication
I am a bit surprised, but it may look like there really is
not a real problem:
