 I did and not only aloud. There are interesting thoughts in this post, for
 sure. But no mentioning of a *centralized* Tor CA that has a root cert
 included into Tor Browser and we singing all the .onion certs.

 Apart from that does the post show a bunch of possible ways to move
 further but does not decide which to choose. That would be a good topic
 for one of our mailing lists (tor-dev maybe). Once we reach a conclusion
 on how to proceed let's file bugs for implementing that one.
