Based on these observations I challenge the claim that the proposed
subpacket adds any value to the standard, and propose to remove it.
Actually from my casual skimming of the device certifications draft I
see most of the changes can be implemented over what is already in OpenPGP.
As you've said - User IDs are quite flexible  and the other change of
device certifications - standard notations (that is notation names that
doesn't contain "@") could just use regular notation names (e.g. 'manu'
Notation could be 'email@example.com').
That would keep OpenPGP as small as possible without parts that most
implementations would basically omit.
Having said that I wasn't around when it was conceived so probably there
is some rationale for its inclusion.
 I did experiment with putting URIs in User IDs for extended info
