to "maximum allowable".  Rationale:  to promote interoperability 
despite the v3 extensions "curse," and so that verbiage agrees 
with the first sentence in paragraph # 3.

I disagree with your comment because v3 certificate extensions in addition
to those listed in the S/MIME CERT I-D may be included in v3 certs used by
S/MIME apps.

                              (2)  Final line.  One-line paragraphs =
grammar.  Combine line with paragraph #1 or # 2.  How should the 
"basicConstraints extension be marked?  "Critical" or...?

                      q.  Section 4.4.3.  How should the "subject
name extension" be marked?

I disagree with these comments.  PKIX I answers these questions.  The S/MIME
CERT I-D should not duplicate what is in PKIX I.
