Certification Requirement for Web services

We are building SF web service out bound clients.  For various reason we are stuck with the an important area. 

1) Is it mandatory to have web service to have a third party certificate as described here ( https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Outbound_Messaging_SSL_CA_Certificates). I am surprised with such a restriction as implementor never had certificate before and most of their web services clients are able to communicate just fine.

2) It would be great if someone can provide an official SF web service documentation where I can look at examples.

Thanks,

1.) When you are sending outbound messages from salesforce, the endpoint which you are sending the outbound messages to must have one of these certificates.
