There is no such a thing, it simply doesn't exist! There is only a 
certificate that is either valid, expired or revoked and every time a 
certificate is issued it's a NEW certificate. It has a new serial number 
and signature hash...and it may have similar properties as another 
certificate but it will never be the same certificate. Every time a CA 
issues a certificate it's a NEW certificate no matter what.

And in this respect it must always comply to the relevant requirements 
and standards. The word "rekeying" is something CAs invented but it 
doesn't really exist - there is no certificate like the other and if 
there was we'd have far bigger problems now.
