Ben - thanks for sending out the link to the NIST document. I will miss the first 30 minutes of our call, so let me offer my thoughts on the NIST Reference Certificate Policy, http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/drafts/nistir-7924/draft_nistir_7924.pdf
I think it would be a mistake for the Forum to require members to edit their CPs/CPSs to match a NIST template. I would say that none of the CA breaches to date are the result of inadequate CPs/CPSs as documents, and the more complex a CA's CPS becomes, the greater chance that it simply becomes wallpaper and won't be followed with any real fidelity.
On the other hand, I DO think it would be very valuable to analyze the NIST CP document for its substantive requirements, especially in security areas, and where appropriate strengthen the existing BRs and our draft Security Guidelines for later incorporation in updated the WebTrust / ETSI audit requirements.
Put another way, so long as we extract the best practices from the NIST document and put them in our CA requirements that are annually audited, I don't think there's any real need to include them in our CPSs (which are already dense enough and hard for the public to read).
