This is not accurate for the problem described. Further, machine readable
PDFs (since it does seem the industry has normalized on PDFs) is quite an
easy problem; I know of many projects which are automatically generating
code from specification PDFs - whether they be the TPM module specification
or the x86 instruction set - so these are demonstrations of the same
problems being solved with a few hours of engineering, rather than being AI

No, what is meant is the opposite - a mapping between the logical
organization and the domain name(s) it recognizes it.

The customer relationship is with the organization, not the root or key.
The desire is to find a way for a customer to express "I am using this
organization to issue/manage my certificates", and from there, discern the
appropriate domain name value.
