I'm looking into this with folks from StartCom. There have, over time,
been two StartCom roots. Certificates issued by the XMPP ICA (which is
no longer issuing certificates, because now they are being issued
directly by StartCom) were issued under the old root. So it seems to me
that perhaps Apple removed the old root from their cert store before all
the certificates issued under that root had expired. I'll follow up with
StartCom about this and report back.
