And I want to see how CAs will struggle when they issue one thing 
initially as a pre-certificate and then place something else into the 
actual certificate and mess with their entire infrastructure maintaining 
multiple PKI trees. Or will poke holes the size of a football field into 
their infrastructure in order to get the desired result. And eventually 
simply drop pre-certificates entirely. That's in the best case, it the 
worse case they either got hacked at some point or messed up their PKI 
trees with who issued what when at which time and to whom...good luck 
with that.
