True, but there are probably reasons for it - as an example we have 
issues with at least two items before we can support the EV guidelines 
for code signing certificates. I believe it's upon the CAs like 
ourselves to introduce possible changes to the guidelines in order to 
get higher adoption.

In any case I prefer guidelines that were developed by the forum 
transparently than behind closed doors between one vendor and two CAs. 
Therefor the working group and general effort is certainly beneficial.
