Folks, I'm sorry to be so dim, but, I'm still confused
as to whether s1 & s2 are the same. Line 985 of core-25
says "MUST be identical", but then goes on to say that
"at least one" confirmation method "MUST match".

I haven't really looked for other cases where Subject
elements might have to be compared but I imagine it'll
be a fairly common thing for PEPs/PDPs to be doing.


PS: s1 & s2 were:
