Let me rephrase the second question. Can Mozilla/Firefox/Konquerer, et
*as they currently exist* deal with the idea of a trust chain rather
signing by a certificate which is installed.
Certification delegation is certainly theoretically possible. However,
main open-source web browsers can't deal with it by default, then the
of delegation becomes far less palatable.
