wicked :-D

however, I don't think it works:

there is no separation anymore between the certificate and the profile 
to which it points, as the profile is *embeded* in the certificate.

So instead of proving that the owner of the certificate has/had write 
access to the given URI, you simply prove that they have access to the 
certificate itself, which is not much to prove ;-)
