Thanks Dimitris for highlighting this.

1.	In section 11.1.2, please update the text to "Qualified Certificates
for electronic signatures issued pursuant to....". I realized that there are
lots of types of "Qualified Certificates" but we're looking at eSignature
Certificates for Natural Persons. In addition, I noticed that the term
"personal Certificate" in the same paragraph, is not properly defined and is
kind of ambiguous. We might want to clarify that this the CA expects a
Certificate where the Subject information identifies a Natural Person. In
case we are willing to accept Qualified Certificates for electronic seals,
which are issued to Legal Entities, the group should discuss and decide. For
now, allowing only eSignature Certificates is the safest approach.

I´d suggest to include also the seals because those are used frequently for
signing code as it represents an organization signing it.
