@martinthomson Sure. Let's say for signalling, I want to use websockets, in secure mode + authenticating client's certificate. To setup such communication I need to issue CA-signed certificates and let CA be known both to server and browser.

Now, let's say for WebRTC channels, I want to pin certificates. Since I already have one certificate, CA-issused, I'd like to use that, to authenticate the same entity, rather than generate a new one.

I understand the argument that certificates should be managed outside of the in-browser code, like websockets do, but since we already have an ability to generate it with RTCPeerConnection API, not sure why it would be much worse to allow to import it.
