Note that having or knowing all OIDs in the known universe isn't really
useful. The only ones we use are the parts of the certificate ID for


 	How many OIDs are currently described in this repository?

 	There are more than 644,000 OID descriptions stored in our repository
 	(see exact number). The repository is well alive and updated as often as
 	necessary; statistics are available about the number of OIDs added to
 	the repository (or updated) over the past 12 months. A (non-exhaustive)
 	list of standards (and other documents that define OIDs) which have been
 	captured in our repository is available.

Limiting to IETF PKIX one would help, but I don't know of any new OIDs
we need to support. If people have requirements, they can always come
and suggest we add support for it or give us patches.
