To be fair (to me :-), I was trying to imply that it must work with 
either whois++ or LDAP w/centipede.  One might argue that if you can 
handle X.509, adding LDAP isn't too much extra work; however the converse 
doesn't necessarily apply, so an LDAP oriented solution may not be as 
stupid as it sounds, however RFC822/whois++ is simpler for the non DER 
savvy (InDERviduals?)
