Description

The description of subject in the Node structure is a bit confusing:

The Subject of this node, which can be repeated as needed. The Node.subject represents the identifier of the node that would be found in X.509 certificates used to securely communicate with this node. Thus, it is an X.509 Distinguished Name that applies to the host on which the Node is operating. When (and if) this hostname changes the new subject for the node would be added to the Node to track the subject that has been used in various access control rules over time.

Review the use of the node subject and adjust the documentation to clarify.
