Have anyone take into account the current position of EJBCA <http://blog.ejbca.org/2013/09/certificate-transparency-and.html> , a mayor player in this stuff of digital certificates?

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.
