> Changes:
> BR 1.6.1 : A definition for the term "Certificate Profile" is inserted.
> BR 5.4.1 : A requirement to log creation, update and delete of
> Certificate Profiles under a CA Private Key is added. Ryan did a good

> "Certificate Profile X changed to X' on date D under the authorship of
> person P" isn't actually a huge workload on CAs.
> BR 5.4.1 : A requirement to log the addition, update and removal of
> software from any CA operating compute is added. As I say in the
> comments, I'm not sure it's actually needed, because I operated under
> the notion that a system description always included a software manifest
> and its history - but perhaps I'm wrong?
> BR 5.4.3 : Added the requirement that logging for CA lifecycle events
> must continue until either the Private Key is destroyed or the last CA
> Certificate corresponding to that public key expires/is revoked.
> Previously, we operated under the assumption that there was 1 CA Private
> Key corresponding to 1 CA Certificate, but that's actually not
> necessarily true. So the language (while horribly clunky) tries to
> capture that.

> and comment/improve it, I'd be hugely grateful.
