Be careful. A DN given a trust anchor seems like a find end-point
identifier. However two nodes can share the same DN without sharing
the same credential. Under 3280 rules either the CA issued a
certificate it should not have issued or the two nodes are the same
subject. That's strong enough for the channel binding to be useful
even though the nodes may not share a credential.
