> Rick, I see here a problem that not all roots have policy OIDs. It's been common understanding that roots serve more like TA containers rather than certificates. Looks like this has changed, right?

EV OIDs are attached to a TA, as metadata.

It fits the X.509/RFC5280 validation algorithm; the relying party just 
has to set the initial-policy-set (X.509) or user-initial-policy-set 
(RFC5280) with the OIDs declared as EV, run the validation algorithm, 
and check the user-constrained-policy-set (X.509) or valid_policy_tree 
(RFC5280) size. If those final sets are not empty, then the certificate 
is EV.
