To be clear, my comments have nothing to do with WebID-TLS. I don't see
<keygen/> making or breaking WebID-TLS, it simply provides a convenience
that needs to be accompanied with appropriate warnings for certificate
generation software developers that also support WebID-TLS. My
particular concern was all about the status of <keygen/> in HTML5 (not
in Chrome which is a Google product).
