FMI becoming an ICANN Certificate Authority?

FileMaker has been improving security and we have all felt the pain of installing SSL certificates (note the many discussions about it).  The current process in 16 is better than in the past, but still a pain. 


I think FMI should become an ICANN Certificate Authority and when they sell a FMS license, part of the licensing includes issuing of an SSL certificate that is done at the service level and all you have to do is give it the domain name.  The information CA's have to ask when you request one is basically the same info FMI gets when they license your software except for domain, which is easy to provide.  If FMI could become a CA and include the SSL cert in the FMS license, maybe that could make this even easier.  It would mean we would not have to go to another company to purchase the cert and could all just be included with the FMS license. 


Or maybe someone else has a better idea of how to make SSL certificate management easier with FMS.
