Well, that's exactly what I actually don't want - and I assume some 
software vendors have a similar problem with that.

I'm the opinion that the legal entity should be always disclosed, 
otherwise why perform a validation and include /some/ name if it can't 
be really (easily) tracked to a legal entity. There must be value in 
details included in a certificate or otherwise omit it (I assume there 
are many CAs willing to issue DV certs for just about any domain).
