This was my initial reaction also. However, as I have noted in recent
messages, I believe we have a lot of the short expiry problems tamed,
if not entirely vanquished. Section 6.1 of the draft supports automating
the revalidation of an expired certificate. I believe it can be shown
that this automation can be done without compromising security.
