[noise] Noise Certificates?

For current typical server-authenticated communications, it’s easy to imagine Noise clients using cert pinning to authenticate the identity of the server. But for mutually-authenticated or client-authenticated channels, it’s often infeasible for a server to have a list of allowed client public keys in advance.

Do you have any plans to amend the Pipe proposal to allow for the inclusion of certificates (during the pipe handshake, presumably)? Or do you intend for users of Noise to solve this problem (if needed) on their own?
