There are already more comprehensive proposals on the table, for example 
the EFF Souvereign Keys project (based on the Perspectives paper by 
Wendlandt et al):

Apparently, it is Google following suit here in cutting themselves a big

It seems that the current move is just a first step in a series of steps 
to change the certificate landscape.
