Only that would mean that 200 countries become Certificate Authorities
and tens of thousand of Chamber of Commerce become too.

Would you be ready to trust some very remote Chamber of Commerce of

Not to mention that to manage these so many CA, you need an
infrastructure that is yet to be deployed.

Best,

Olivier
