Cool!  ;-)

Verisign's CPS has been an inspiration for me for quite
a few years now. E.g., this statement has been in there
for a number of years:

  The Certificate, however, provides no proof of the identity
  of the Subscriber.

Taken from page 12 of the current version, obviously (?)
referring to so-called "Class 3 certificates".
