Adding name constraints to MintChip's certificate authority?

While looking at MintChip's hosted API's security, I noticed that the MintChip certificate authority's certificate doesn't list any name constraints (see [0]).

Would it be possible for some to be added?

    Ok, so further research suggests that the name constraints field is ignored by most implementations… So it wouldn't provide very much *practical* security. But it would still be nice to see :)
