RE: ;binary and userCertificate (Was: Private email ...)
Let me boil this down...
The specification says certificates are to be requested and

If these other implementors' interpretation of the specification
was reasonable, that is, a result of ambiguity in the
specification, then it could be argued that specification
should be clarified to one of the two (or more) reasonable
If on the other hand, these implementors simply did not
adhere to the specification, they are broken. They should
It's my belief that this is a case of the latter.
