We support the ballot as written, and I share Ryan's concerns about the
precedents that regulating a CA's communications with its customers
would set. I comment because I also have an active disagreement with
Kirk's amendment.

I actually think it is fine for CAs to suggest that customers consider
using CAA if they are not using it - something which your first point
outlaws. I agree that 2), and the analogous part in 3), are bad ideas.
But not all bad ideas should be illegal.
