That information is stored in Dogtag, but I don't think there's
currently a straightforward way to get at it.  Having it stored in
Dogtag (only) would necessitate first contacting Dogtag and looking
up the profile for each certificate to find out whether we should
revoke or not.

I do not think we should implement anything that relies on the MS
"certificate template" extension (in case it is not wanted, or even
causes problems for some application).

But let us take a step back - is there a situation where for one
profile (for which ipaCertProfileStoreIssued == True) we would want
to automatically revoke when principal deleted, and for another
profile not revoke?  Or would it be better as a global setting or a
{user,host,service}-del option?

We would also need to work out a revocationReason; we could use
"unspecified" to start with, but can we / should be provide
something richer?
