If we want to drop ia5String from DirectoryString structure in order to be RFC5280 compliant, I think just dropping the ia5String from DirectoryString is the correct and most natural way.
No parsing error will be reported if somebody tries to use ia5String value in DirectoryString as type=DirectoryString is a CHOICE anyway.
