That's another example of trying to solve something with PKI technology
instead of examining how processes work in the real world and whether there's
a technical solution at all. Just like the famous "warranty" draft.

Hey, don't criticise that, it provided a valuable service by pointing out 
that the default warranty for certs is:

  Warranty  ::=  CHOICE  {
     none                 NULL,            -- No warranty provided
     ...  }

or more specifically (in not-quite-ASN.1):

  Warranty ::= DEFAULT NULL

So if you don't find a warranty extensions, you know that the above is the
warranty attached to your cert.
