hehe - if they would force you to use "private" keys generated on their servers,
then I would agree. But this is not the case. Thus I do not see a
potential security issue. But maybe I am missing something?

Personally I like their uncomplicated procedures.
The only (visible) drawback is the lack of an "organization" field in the
certificate - thus it does not emanate the trustful aura of a corporation.

Anyway - feel free to ignore these personal opinions ...
