> In the future, we will attempt to move non-browser applications like this to non-browser roots, but for now they are very much intertwined.  It was agreed that I would draft a ballot to add an exception to the BRs for this purpose, just as we have an exception in the BRs to allow issuance from the root. That exception, I might add, is predominantly for non-web pki applications, because all modern browsers can handle chained certs.

I would consider to include a requirement that such certificates must 
not be accessible publicly through the HTTPS protocol. This might 
require proactive action by the CA, something which might also help 
reduce reliance on such an exception.
