My expectation is that you don't have to faithfully represent what was
provided as arguments.  That is, you don't have to do things like
maintain the order of dictionary fields, or include attributes that
you don't understand (I mean, you could, but that's open-ended and
would only work if the attribute was serializable, etc...).  That
would allow you to generate a dictionary based on the properties of
the key and certificate.

But as you say, it's not as trivial as it seems.
