KSBA: Using names of OID from different sources

Hi all,

Is there a reason for dn.c:append_atv() being restricted to only use names for OIDs
which are in rfc2253 ?

eg. while openssl s_client converts "1.2.840.113549.1.9.1" to emailAddress:

issuer=/C=XX/ST=There is no such thing outside US/L=Everywhere/O=OCOSA/OU=Office
for Complication of Otherwise Simple
Affairs/CN=ubuntu804-base.localdomain/emailAddress=root at ubuntu804-base.localdomain

Calling ksba_cert_get_issuer() would return this:

in,OU=Office for Complication of Otherwise Simple
Affairs,O=OCOSA,L=Everywhere,ST=There is no such thing outside US,C=XX

Best regards,
