The authoritative source as to what Chromium accepts from logs, and expects
of logs, is at

This includes the Google Pilot and Aviator logs, as well as any other logs
that wish to be included in Chromium.

Changes to this policy - which currently requires RFC6962 - which does not
permit the privacy options of BIS, either via the PRIVATE extension or via
name-constrained intermediates - will be discussed on ctr
policy at chromium.org, and any changes to Chrome's policies will be discussed

Ben is absolutely correct in characterizing that there is interest in that,
and exploring the technical feasibility, but I wanted to make sure to take
the opportunity on our call to prevent any additional confusion:
- There is a single policy for Chrome/Chromium, which all logs must follow.
- Discussions and changes to that policy will happen on
ct-policy at chromium.org, as the singularly authoritative list.

Unless and until the policy is changed, private names will not be
recognized by Chromium when validating SCTs, nor will Logs that use them.
