I’m not advocating removing proper authorization.  Its adequately covered under Section  11.7 and 11.8.  What I’m opposed to is requiring a verification of authority under Section 11.6.

On 05/15/2013 02:57 AM, From Jeremy Rowley: 

name verification should really be completely separate from obligations
surrounding use of a certificate and verification of the certificate

For years the exclusive right and proper authorization was part of the landscape of EV. If this proposal would be adopted we probably will abandon non-EV organization validated certificates and move them all over to EV (for the better or worse). But then we probably should remove the "Extended" from "Extended Validation" because it clearly wouldn't be that anymore. :-)
