Is the ITU-T E.164 reference used to disallow Skype or similar services?
Is an email address considered more "verified" than a Skype/whatever

> The EV Guidelines Working Group has completed its review of Section

> to transition away from a landline-centric focus. The purpose of
> Section 11.4.2 has been to ensure a means for communicating with an
> organization (to verify the authority of EV roles and ensure that it

> Cecilia Kam of Symantec made the following motion, and Rich Smith from
> Comodo and Jeremy Rowley from DigiCert have endorsed it.
> Motion Begins
> 1. Create a new definition for a "Verified Method of Communication" in
> the EV Guidelines:
> " Verified Method of Communication: The use of a public
> telecommunication routing number (ITU-E.164-compliant fixed, mobile,
> fax, or SMS), an email address, or a postal delivery address,
> confirmed by the CA in accordance with Section 11.4.2 of the
> Guidelines as a reliable way of communicating with the Applicant."
> 2. DELETE Section 11.4.2 (Telephone Number for Applicant's Place of
> Business) and INSERT the following:
> "11.4.2 Verified Method of Communication
> (1) Verification Requirements: To assist in communicating with the
> Applicant and confirming that the Applicant is aware of and approves
> issuance, the CA MUST establish at least one Verified Method of
> Communication with the Applicant.
> (2) Acceptable Methods of Verification: To verify a Verified Method of
> Communication with the Applicant, the CA MUST:
> (A) Verify that the number or address belongs to the Applicant, or a
> Parent or Affiliate of the Applicant, by matching it with one of the
> Applicant's Places of Business in: (i) records provided by the
> applicable phone company; (ii) a QGIS, QTIS, or QIIS; or (iii) a
> Verified Legal Opinion or Verified Accountant Letter; and
> (B) Confirm the Verified Method of Communication by using it to obtain
> an affirmative response sufficient to enable a reasonable person to
> conclude that the Applicant, or a Parent or Affiliate of Applicant,
> can be contacted reliably by using the Verified Method of Communication.
> 3. In subsection 11.13.1(1)(D), REPLACE "Telephone number for Place of
> Business" with "Verified Method of Communication."
> 4. REPLACE subsection 11.13.3(1)(C) with "The Verified Method of
> Communication required by Section 11.4.2, but still MUST perform the
> verification required by Section 11.4.2(2)(B);"
> Motion Ends
> The review period for this ballot shall commence at 2200 UTC on
> Tuesday, 15 April 2014, and will close at 2200 UTC on Tuesday, 22
> April 2014. Unless the motion is withdrawn during the review period,
> the voting period will start immediately thereafter and will close at
> 2200 UTC on Tuesday, 29 April 2014. Votes must be cast by posting an
