This shouldn't be a problem if you take care of creating the X.509
certificates correctly. Reading the RFC and (mostly) testing is key.

Sure. Apache, for HTTPS, is the same usage (as XSP). Other kinds of
usage could be S/MIME, code signing... all possible under a same CA.

There are a few "must avoid examples" in bugzilla, when people hit a
problem (e.g. certificate usage). You can also find a lot of them by
Googling - but their quality will vary a lot.

The best approach would be to read the related RFC, OpenSSL
documentation, test and, when required, ask questions on mono-list (well
if it's related to Mono ;-)
