I'm not sure whether I am appropriate or not to make a response
to the question.

The Rationale of the Ballot 132 says as follows... 

Ballot 132 - EV Code Signing Timestamp Validity Period 
Rationale for Ballot 132 
1. Ideally, TSA services should be consistent across the multiple services
that rely on them (Code Signing, EV Code Signing, AATLs, etc.) 
2. Time stamps are used not just to time-stamp code, but other objects, such
as signed financial reports and other digital objects.

Kind regards,
Atsushi Inaba

Thanks Inaba-san!

I see that Japanese Companies Act is KAISYAHOU in Japanese.
And I've found the authorized English translation by government:

But I still just wondering that how code signing have something to do with
these subarticles 435(2), 435(4) of the Japanese Companies Act.  Though I am
a programmer and not a lawyer, it seems for me that these subarticles are
mentioning paper works of physical documentations, not digitally signed
progmams or data.  (Or am I wrong?)
