Honestly I believe CAs should immediately refrain from issuing anything 
accept TLDs that have been approved by ICANN and try to reduce/replace 
existing certificates as much as possible.

No matter how you turn it, it's messy and risky for the CAs no matter 
which requirement is cooked up and dangerous for the relying parties.
