I did some research on that and also contacted the local CA operators.
They told me that ns-cert-type is old,propriety and depracated and does
not significantly add to security. Here are some references:
In any case, this certificate extension is never gonna be
supported in several educational large PKI infrastructures that I (and
serveral other academic users as well) employ. So lack of this feature
will mean loss of a large audience for the networkmanager tool.
Can we have a fix please ?:)

Is there any other why, apart from changing the source code, to bypass it?
Maybe a feature to be added allowing changes of advanced openvpn settings?
Greate feature, but may break security...
