For me a certificate is just a container for cryptographic credentials. There are all kinds of certificates. TLS has been designed around X.509 but I think we can generalize from this. Whether you call a raw public-key a certificate or not depends on taste I guess. In the comment I explicitly call this a certificate because we are inspecting a certificate credential that holds a certificate list of which the certificate(s) (i.e. the contents) only contain a raw public-key.

Please let me know whether (after my explanation) you still want me to update the comment.
