Without regard to expiration, what's the purpose of cert #1?

Having emendations/certs-on-certs *is* a good idea, but only on the
top-level cert. I mean, what would it mean to be a Jr. Admin with an
Advanced Security Admin extension on it?
I have to check this: does CCNA (for example) come with
subspecializations, or only CCIE?

So you could be a "Jr. Sysadmin 4.x certified" or are these completely
separate, with no levels attached (you're "FreeBSD 4.x certified"
without reference to level)?
