It is NOT meant to prohibit  all types of DV SANs

It is meant to prohibit DV SANs under certain conditions i.e. where non
unique information is contained, or Public IPs are used, or there is a
mixture of owners as detailed by the domain registration.

If you own kirk.com and finewineexpert.com then you can have both inside if
they are registered to you.

Please read the text again carefully and highlight which situation you
specifically don't agree with and why you feel it's acceptable to continue.

To help members evaluate Ballot 92 we are attaching a side-by-side
comparison of current Baseline Requirements language with the proposed new
language.  As before, the intent of this ballot is to prohibit DV SANs
certificates, which we will oppose.
Trend Micro does not issue DV certificates, but we think they serve a
valuable security function in increasing the use of SSL.  Forcing customers
to buy OV certs instead is anti-competitive and will likely lead to less use
of SSL to secure sites.
