Don't have 100% of the use case either.  Someone's looking for MyVD to give
them the client certificate in an insert (our equivalent of an interceptor)
so they can do authorizations.  For service accounts its very elegant if
you think about it as it eliminates the need for passwords (assuming thats
what its for).
