Same here, although I'm a bit swamped with other work...

I agree. I personally think that at least the sample hook work on here
would be a good candidate for this[1], although I don't know what's the
status of it. The way they are right now, they should at least warn when
push certificates are not enabled on the server side (i.e., there is no
hook to handle it).
