They however closely use the same argumentation I've been using during 
all discussions for the last few years including those preceding the BR. 
And I'm not surprised really - when certificate authorities confirm 
something that it hasn't verified and isn't able to verify, it failed in 
its very basic tasks.

We are on the right track with phasing them out and ICANN apparently is 
willing to work with the CAB Forum, but my recommendation is to stop 
this practice as soon as possible voluntarily.
