[cabfpub] Ballot 114: Improvements to the EV Defintions

Cecilia Kam from Symantec made the following motion, and Jeremy Rowley 
from DigiCert and Kirk Hall from Trend Micro endorsed it. 
This proposal clarifies the definition of Business Entities, Private 
Organizations, and Incorporating Agencies. The change to Business Entity 
fixes the omission of non-commercial entities and clarifies that the 
examples are not all-encompassing. The Private Organization change helps 
promote EV in countries where they don?t generally use the term 
?Incorporating Agency?. The change in Incorporating Agency gives the 
guidelines a more international focus by using the term formation over 
incorporation and by acknowledging that businesses are generally 
registered, not established, with a filing. 
--- Motion begins ---

EV Guidelines: 
Business Entity: Any entity that is not neither a Private Organization, 
nor a Government Entity, or Non-Commercial Entity as defined herein. 
Examples include, but are not limited to, general partnerships, 
unincorporated associations, and sole proprietorships, etc. 
Private Organization: A non-governmental legal entity (whether ownership 
interests are privately held or publicly traded) whose existence was 
created by a filing with (or an act of) the Incorporating Agency or 
equivalent in its Jurisdiction of Incorporation. 
Incorporating Agency: In the context of a Private Organization, the 
government agency in the Jurisdiction of Incorporation under whose 
authority the legal existence of the entity is registered Private 
Organizations is established (e.g., the government agency that issues 
Certificates of Incorporation certificates of formation or incorporation). 
In the context of a Government Entity, the entity that enacts law, 
regulations, or decrees establishing the legal existence of Government
