I've received a question about why Latin characters are required in the O
field.  Does anyone recall what our discussions were on this?  Appendix D of
the EV Guidelines currently reads:  


(1)          Non-Latin Organization Name

Where an EV Applicant's organization name is not registered with a QGIS in
Latin characters and the Applicant's foreign character organization name and
registration have been verified with a QGIS in accordance with these
Guidelines, a CA MAY include a Latin character organization name in the EV
Certificate.  In such a case, the CA MUST follow the procedures laid down in
this section.


It implies that other character sets are prohibited, but it doesn't
expressly.  It says that you MAY convert to Latin characters.
