Nice write up, Andrew! You mentioned the Trustico incident where they intentionally emailed their customer's private keys out in order to sabotage their CA relationship (private keys they never should've had in the first place). While that's was a truly shocking event, what's even more bizarre is that another CA was more than happy to immediately let Trustico hitch their wagon to them to gain their business knowing full well what they had just done.
