[Members] intermediate CA proposal

Good timing as we're working on overhauling the certificate handling in
Wildfire at the moment.

>From what I remember from last week, Starcom has two certificate
approval processes:

 1) Email verification for personal certs.
 2) Fax in photo ID's and documentation for class 2 server certs. 

Is the latter the process the JSF would undergo, or something different?

Questions, comments:

 * We'd be interested in supporting as much of the cert application
process through web services as possible. This would make it trivial to
create cert requests and have them approved from within Wildfire and any
other XMPP server that implements the required web services.
 * Does the JSF need to fully subsidize the certificates? What if it
defrayed the cost rather than making them free?
