My point is not that we are entirely indifferent to such problems, but that perhaps the category of "mis-issuance" is the wrong one for such errors. I guess it depends what we mean by "mis-issuance" - which is the entire point of this discussion! So, if mis-issuance means there is some sort of security problem, then my original definition still seems like a good one to me. If mis-issuance means any problem where the certificate is not as it should be, then we need a wider definition. I wonder whether we need a new word for certificates which are bogus for a non-security-related reason. "Mis-constructed"?
