/**
 * An immutable policy qualifier represented by the ASN.1 PolicyQualifierInfo 
 * structure.<br />
 * <br />
 * The ASN.1 definition is as follows:<br />
 * <br /><pre>
 *   PolicyQualifierInfo ::= SEQUENCE {
 *        policyQualifierId       PolicyQualifierId,
 *        qualifier               ANY DEFINED BY policyQualifierId }
 * </pre><br />
 * <br />
 * A certificate policies extension, if present in an X.509 version 3 
 * certificate, contains a sequence of one or more policy information terms,
 * each of which consists of an object identifier (OID) and optional
 * qualifiers. In an end-entity certificate, these policy information terms
 * indicate the policy under which the certificate has been issued and the 
 * purposes for which the certificate may be used. In a CA certificate, these 
 * policy information terms limit the set of policies for certification paths 
 * which include this certificate.<br />
 * <br />
 * A <code>Set</code> of <code>PolicyQualifierInfo</code> objects are returned 
 * by the {@link PolicyNode#getPolicyQualifiers PolicyNode.getPolicyQualifiers} 
 * method. This allows applications with specific policy requirements to 
 * process and validate each policy qualifier. Applications that need to 
 * process policy qualifiers should explicitly set the 
 * <code>policyQualifiersRejected</code> flag to false (by calling the 
 * {@link PKIXParameters#setPolicyQualifiersRejected 
 * PKIXParameters.setPolicyQualifiersRejected} method) before validating 
 * a certification path.<br />
 * <br />
 * Note that the PKIX certification path validation algorithm specifies
 * that any policy qualifier in a certificate policies extension that is 
 * marked critical must be processed and validated. Otherwise the 
 * certification path must be rejected. If the 
 * <code>policyQualifiersRejected</code> flag is set to false, it is up to 
 * the application to validate all policy qualifiers in this manner in order 
 * to be PKIX compliant.<br />
 * <br />
 * <b>Concurrent Access</b><br />
 * <br />
 * All <code>PolicyQualifierInfo</code> objects must be immutable and
 * thread-safe. That is, multiple threads may concurrently invoke the
 * methods defined in this class on a single <code>PolicyQualifierInfo</code> 
 * object (or more than one) with no ill effects. Requiring 
 * <code>PolicyQualifierInfo</code> objects to be immutable and thread-safe 
 * allows them to be passed around to various pieces of code without 
 * worrying about coordinating access.<br />
 * <br />
 * Uses {@link org.bouncycastle.asn1.DERInputStream DERInputStream},
 * {@link org.bouncycastle.asn1.ASN1Sequence ASN1Sequence},
 * {@link org.bouncycastle.asn1.DERObjectIdentifier DERObjectIdentifier},
 * {@link org.bouncycastle.asn1.DEROutputStream DEROutputStream},
 * {@link org.bouncycastle.asn1.DERObject DERObject} and
 * {@link org.bouncycastle.asn1.util.ASN1Dump#dumpAsString dumpAsString}
