> One more thing I forgot to mention: Tom Albertson of Microsoft made it clear that his metric is whether or not the existence of the certificate in question can cause harm to Windows users (not just IE users). For him, it's not enough that the certificate is not used by a browser. He would like us to pay attention to the possibility that a 1024-bit certificate might harm Windows users.

He's probably right, but it's out of the scope of the BR and EV 
guidelines. Hence my previous suggestion (your additional comment above 
might not be related though).
