One of the big advantages: if you are issuing certificates for
subject principals defined in the FreeIPA directory, you get a lot
of validation and authorisation for those certificate requests based
on what FreeIPA knows.  It can be quite complicated to set up such a
regime with Dogtag.  OTOH if you need to issue certs for entities
about which FreeIPA knows nothing, then FreeIPA doesn't bring a lot
to the table right now.

If you clearly know what you want but there's isn't support in
FreeIPA, file an RFE.  Like Alexander mentioned there's no guarantee
if or when we can implement it, but at least we will know about it
and be able to work assess it alongside other priorities.

Cheers,
Fraser
