I guess I don't quite get what you are after.

Are you talking about a certificate chain that authenticates an individual
user?  If so, that is already supported -- the request attribute that you get is
an array of certificate objects, with the first one being the certificate of the
client principal, and the subsequent ones being the certificates of the
certificate authorities vouching for the previous certificate in the chain.

If that's not what you are after, could you please explain further?
