1. I strongly disagree that md2-with-RSA is a MUST. I think this
should be a MAY or omitted.
On what basis you you disagree?
For compatibility, dropping MD2 may not be the best idea. Based on a quick
evaluation of the root self-signed certificates that I have, I found 108
total certificates, 11 of which were signed with MD2 (44 were signed with
MD5, the rest with SHA-1).
