This is often hard to implement.

FWIW, Libksba uses an rfc-2253 representation of DNs in its API, thus
there is no problem due to the required quoting.  However, for bad
(well, unlikely) encodings of URLs, Libksba now uses a made up OID to
indicate this error: (invalid encoded OID).
You may want to use a similar hack.
