Related notes:

with cert:modulus and cert:hexBinary we have something that uses well established standards,
It allowing for flexibility, simplicity of querying, reduction of namespaces, whilst not taking sides between X509 ASN.1, GPG, or XML-DSIG with which we are compatible. Plus it is human readable.
