so, if a "time stamp Responder" uses several signature creation devices in order to increase performance, but the
corresponding certificates are issued for the same subject names, these signature creation devices represent the same
TSU? This seems counterintuitive to me.
And I am not sure whether this (quite typical) scenario is reflected by the new draft. At least the last sentence in
section 3.3 indicates a different scenario:
A TSS MAY have distinct TSUs, e.g., to accommodate different
policies, different algorithms, different private key sizes or to
increase the performance.
