Thanks for doing this. As I mentioned on GitHub, I think there's some
misunderstanding, below.

I'm not sure why this is difficult? This is already a requirement of the EV
Guidelines (that is, the values in a cert MUST be linked to the
Registration Agency / Agency of Incorporation). So you're already supposed
to be managing this and there should be exactly 1 value for each of these.

useful/important and look to collect, which a number are.
