Hmm, in this instance it's only self-signed because that's the quickest way to generate a WebID on the Mac. Look at the other options in first image I posted — you can just as easily generate a CSR containing the subjectAltName rather than a self-signed cert (and on the other side, sign the request and spit out a cert, and e-mail it/upload it/whatever).
