Several people have suggested the qc OID already serves this purpose.


Of course, I offered alternatives previously as well, if there's an insistence 
on subject attributes, which is to do the same thing Microsoft did with 
respect to EV certificates, which is not to overload the X.500 series of 
naming identifiers, and instead use an OID attribute appropriate for the 
naming context. There, the naming context itself (the OID) serves to 
unambiguously identify the semantic meaning of the content.
