I currently don't think so.  The direct method should go away anyway.

It is just a relic from the time we started with this thing.  Sure
there is an additional burden to have a certificate for the subdomain
but given the slow acceptance of the Web Key Directory I would not
consider the direct method a real help for anyone.  Those who run their
own webserver and might use the direct method, will also be able to
setup a subdomain.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
