I believe it is.  Each online test response carries its own validity 
interval (a simple one, in terms of not-after datime or lifetime (duration 
from the time of the request, to be added to the caller's clock to get 
not-after datime)).  All of these not-after datimes are intersected with any 
from the certificate itself.

I've just added notes about that to my copy of the draft.
