I can see it, actually.  Let's say that I have a certificate for
personal use, and a separate one for corporate use where the private
part is escrowed with the firm.  You might trust signatures from my
personal cert but not from the corporate cert, due to your concerns over
my corporate masters being able to impersonate me at-will.
