So you are saying that CA we chain to or get the certs from should
always be a root CA?
Why does it matter for our code whether the CA we deal with a Root CA or

If we are trying to say that we do not follow the chains of trust I can
understand that. So the limitation is that we should always be given the
certs from the same CA we chain to and not its sub CA's, right? That
makes sense.

Can someone describe a use case where in real life the certs would come
from one CA in the chain but we would be told to chain or use a sub CA
of that CA. That seems strange. What am I missing?
