They can be used to start an OCSP responder and fetch a cached OCSP
response for hostapd-as-RADIUS-authenticator-server. In addition, the
web server running the OSU service would either point directly to that
OCSP responder or used some external scripts to periodically update the
response depending on how the HTTPS server is configured.

That's mostly in the certificate policy document.

Sure. I have all those separate names to make it easier to check
functionality in logs, but all the names point to the same IP address.
