Thats a good question. Typically with cert validation only the CN
component in the subject is cross checked. More aggressive validators
are free to examine all RDN's in the subject (not sure what the PKIX
behavior is with respect other RDN's). Of course this isn't cert
validation but validating a CSR is closely related. The first place I
would look is the Dogtag policy.

FWIW I've authored a set of Python utilities to work with pem files for
OpenStack. They work just fine with PEM blocks embedded with non-PEM
text. I was thinking the utilities would also be useful in FreeIPA (in
fact my experience in IPA is what guided the development of these
utilities. I'll try to get them up in a git repo shortly and send a pointer.
