Very unlikely, a cert from veri$ign etc that would allow you to do that
would cost a lot more than a simple host cert, and there's very little 
benefit to us in doing that.  The "globally recognized CAs" are only
useful to browsers - because most users do not want to think about
deciding whom to trust.
