Hmm. I just have a convention for CNs that goes like
<username>-<extraname>.vpn.company.com, where the key-generation
instructions document to the user that <extraname> should be something
that identifies the system they're using. (CSRs are manually reviewed
before signing, so IT can bounce back a certificate that fails to follow
this convention).

As long as I don't use duplicate-cn, the users have plenty of motivation
to build extra certificates for their spare machines, and so I don't find
that the problem you describe is one that I have.
