Are SPKI tags limited to a single parent in their construction form?
Surely, the single-tag cert could need to reference multiple cert-id's
which grant it authority or other privilege.
Encoding a single hierarchy of authority through tag assignment practices
is otherwise known as an ASN.1 object identifier.
An SPKI goal is surely to get rid of such uni-hierarchical tag notions,
not reinvent it!
