However, this means nothing to people who don't know what it already
means, while "self-signed" is something that more people understand.

But the suggestion to only suggest that the certificate may be
self-signed if the issuer and host name are the same may help a bit.
There's quite a few self-signed sites out there where that's not the
case, though.
