This new webrev incorporates feedback from the CCC:


This needs additional tests, but I want to check first if the direction
is okay.

The PolicyQualifierInfoSet class is needed because there is no existing
LinkedTreeSet class.  I do not want to continue to use LinkedHashSet
because of the denial of service risk from hash collisions (this was not
a problem before because the hash was identity-based), and the cost of
computing hash codes even for single-element sets.
