How does Ryan's proposal differ from Brian's?

Brian's proposal, as I now understand it, is basically that we make what
Mozilla requires (in terms of constrain or disclose-and-audit) part of
the BRs rather than just Mozilla policy. And we define that the BRs
cover all publicly-trusted roots, all disclosed-and-audited
intermediates, and certificates issued from them.
