Not entirely objectionable indeed, but it really depends on what we
would have to pay for.  As long as it is only covering for
administrative costs of Microsoft emitting a new certificate, it is
fine.  If OTOH we have to pay a fee just for our software to work on
platforms that just happen to be using Microsoft’s certificate, this is
clearly abusive.  I would object to do so, and I believe we would (at
least in Europe) have a very strong case in court against such practice.
