In hindsight, adding a new method would probably have been cleaner, so
that we could ask "does this cert indicate the use of hardware"
independently of "does this cert authorize this principal".

However, since we're halfway in on shoehorning both questions into one
method, I guess it's no less clean at this point to add another entry in
the answer matrix.  So, this is fine.
