Feedback on ASP.NET Web API

HTTP Client Certificates should be available to WebAPI code in a host agnostic way

Since HTTP(S) client certificates are a fundamental piece in the HTTP story, there should be a standard way to access them from within WebAPI. Ideally on HttpRequestMessage.ClientCertificate (of type X509Certificate2).

Currently you would have to use host specific ways to get to that information like HttpContext.Current.Request.ClientCertificate.
