I'd say there's a specific case where all three go together: if I am trying to 
verify a client certificate in a server application, I probably want to verify 
that the client certificate was issued by my CA. 

However, this case is uncommon and it's also unlikely to happen in a closed / 
controlled platform. Servers running SSL services are often not mobile 
applications, but it could happen for device-to-device communication in an 
Internet of Things world...
