The certificate URI is fine for me.  Is there a way to accept an OCSP
reply when the responder is using a self-signed root and isn't in the
chain of trust for the certificate/CA? There is probably a good reason
to the DoD OCSP certificates, but OCSP always fails for me, causing the
huge delays for CRL download.
