The only case in which it could arise is if the backing PKI is X.509 and the
certificate enquired about is in suspend status.

Under X.509v3 rules the certificate is Invalid from the date specified in
the CRL to the date of the next CRL.

When the next CRL is issued the cert might be reinstated or might still be
suspended.
