Daniel Kahn Gillmor commented:

I note that i can launder the .p12 file through NSS's `pk12util` to remove the passwords on the embedded certificates:

     nsstmp=$(mktemp -d)
     pk12util -i bob.der.p12 -d "sql:$nsstmp"
     pk12util -o bob.laundered.p12 -n bob -d "sql:$nsstmp" -W '' -C NONE
     rm -rf "$nsstmp"

but even that laundered certificate has a passphrase (the empty string) on the private key material, despite having no passphrase for the certificates.  Maybe it's not possible to store a cleartext private key in PKCS#12?
