>> However, a cert seems almost certainly *not* to be IP.

If anybody can alter, revoke or reissue a certificate then I agree it is
common property to which attaches no meaningful notion of property rights.

If on the other hand only certain people can alter, revoke or reissue a
certificate then it seems to me they have some sort of property rights in
the certificate and from their point of view the certificate is their
property and not everybody's property.

Whether it is intellectual property or some other form of property or even
some new form of property is I also agree debatable.
