Sorry, I have to be pedantic (its one of those days) but I hope you mean that the certificates are donated to the 'RFC Editor'. I understand that the actual work happens at the publisher.
As far as documentation goes, I guess that modifying RFC5485 with s/IETF Secretariat/RFC Editor/g comes close, correct? I guess we a document (RFC?) to describe the attributes, or is that overkill?
FWIW, The subpoena argument makes sense as a motivation, specifically since most of the tools are available.
