Just to update this discussion: on the last call, I believe it was
agreed that what we really need here is a problem statement. The two
companies we explicitly discussed may well already qualify under
existing definitions, either as CAs or as browsers.

So, until we have an example of a company who credibly wants to or might
want to join, and for whom there is general agreement that the current
definition is insufficiently broad, it seems there is nothing to do here.

Feel free to argue with this conclusion :-)
