RE: Certificates Field in Signed Data

Use of a SET OF SEQUENCES disturbs me greatly, while I don't have an
opinion on the difference between a SET or a SEQUENCE I really don't
care for the SET OF SEQUENCES.

Microsoft Exchange uses two certificates in general, one for key
exchange and one for signature.  If a SET OF SEQUENCES were to be used
would I need to duplicate the chain of certificates potentially multiple
times, one for every different leaf that I send, or are clients going to
have to be able to jump around between the different sequences.  This
seems to me to be a much greater hit than just shipping a single bag of
certificates and letting clients do the searching within that single
