I think that's true. And also, to continue to use cloud providers as an
example, if we pick "just the cloud provider" or we pick "just the site
operator", then we have to say how we prevent the other party getting a
cert. Do we do it by restricting the validation methods, or by adding an
extra check by the CA, or by requiring the applicant to assert their
role in contract, or a different way altogether?
