I get the impression that the value of commercial certificates is below that of the free ones you can get from http://www.cacert.org/

Extended validation certificates

Sure it is. A non-anonymous CACert web site certificate means that at least two people saw two official documents proving your identity (passport+driver's license). However, the actual content of these documents is not recorded, so in case you want to sue someone over a certificate, you are somewhat lost with CACert certificates, as well (no address, no passport number, etc.).
