I thought the passport example was very good. A slight
tweak (for wildcard certificates) is to imagine a
passport that identifies a person and their children,
but not their grand children. I think such passports
exist (or used to), but only for very young children.
It's not a perfect analogy, but I hope it paints the
picture well enough.
