Hi Bruce,

As we discussed on our regular teleconference yesterday, I have two 

 1. In section 11.1.2, please update the text to "Qualified Certificates
    _for electronic signatures_ issued pursuant to....". I realized that
    there are lots of types of "Qualified Certificates" but we're
    looking at eSignature Certificates for Natural Persons. In addition,
    I noticed that the term "personal Certificate" in the same
    paragraph, is not properly defined and is kind of ambiguous. We
    might want to clarify that this the CA expects a Certificate where
    the Subject information identifies a Natural Person. In case we are
    willing to accept Qualified Certificates for electronic seals, which
    are issued to Legal Entities, the group should discuss and decide.
    For now, allowing only eSignature Certificates is the safest approach.
 2. In section 13.2.2 please remove the additional text regarding
    Certificate suspension. We can address that in a separate ballot.

During your review, you had a comment for section 9.3.3 indicating 
that/"This section may conflict with Appendix A. The requirement should 
be stated in one place. A reference may also be required"/. Indeed, we 
have similar language in Appendix A. Do you plan to address this comment 
in this ballot? I think it fits the "cleanup and clarification" nature.

Finally, I want to highlight that although this ballot is labeled 
"cleanup and clarification", it does change some normative requirements 
so CAs should pay attention and read this ballot carefully for possible 
areas of concern.

Best regards,
