Default Would you knowingly trust an irrevocable SSL certificate?

From http://news.netcraft.com/archives/20...rtificate.html

Quote:
Despite the inconsistent treatment of certificate revocation by browsers, providing reliable revocation information is an integral part of operating a trustworthy certificate authority (CA) and a well-accepted requirement of Mozilla's CA root program. However, there are presently thousands of certificates in use which are irrevocable in some major browsers, and hundreds in those browsers which do everything right.
