I think it's absolutely not relevant how or on what (technically) the 
OCSP response is based as long as the response is correct. It can be a 
combination of different DBs or lists. We would vote against it if it 
explicitly states that a CRL can not be used.

I believe the internal technical workings of such a responder has 
nothing lost in the guidelines. You may set a policy what it should do 
under which circumstances, but that's it.
