> “Incorrect extensions” is hardly prohibitive of underscore characters

   When the subjectAltName extension contains a domain name system
   label, the domain name MUST be stored in the dNSName (an IA5String).
   The name MUST be in the "preferred name syntax", as specified by
   Section 3.5 of [RFC1034] and as modified by Section 2.1 of

plus the BRs All Certificates
All other fields and extensions MUST be set in accordance with RFC 5280.

Can you remind me again where there's any possible interpretation of the
above that would result in underscores being permitted?
