The certificate is a proof of identity.
But we only need to refer to a relay by its ed25519 public key:

"master-key-ed25519" SP MasterKey NL

[At most once]

Contains the base-64 encoded ed25519 master key as a single argument. If it is present, it MUST match the identity key in the identity-ed25519 entry.
