If A and B have already got a trust path, then sure it's only two.  If
not, then someone has to act as the TTP (trusted third party) that
vouchsafe's A's identity to B and vice-versa.  Fewer trust anchors is a
priori easier to manage than more trust anchors.

As always.  Security is a risk management issue.
