The problem is that any CA that has issued such SSL certs to such non-web PKI applications, and needs to continue to issue them for business continuity, will fail their audit and will have to engage in a discussion with each trust store owner to convince them to retain their roots. 

It's not just us and its not just this particular usage. Other CAs have the same issue.
