I'm sure you read the proposal and the various components. I just wanted 
to see how different certificates are used in the design and in various 
components. The design includes:

  * Country Signing Certificate Authorities
  * Gateways
  * Trust Anchor certificates
  * NB CSCA certificates
  * TLS server certificates for DGCG
  * NB TLS client certificates

IMHO we should first try to understand how this design is supposed to 
work in order to propose changes. From a first look, it looks like a 
closed system and PTCs are not justified. However, we might be missing 
something like how the DGCs could be verified by anyone through the 
public Internet.
