I too might be wrong on this, but according to my memory I recall that 
you were the person arguing against it when we discussed it last time 
when we created the BR. :-)

IIRC Wayne from Godaddy argued (correctly) that if wild cards should be 
restricted it would make most sense to have it supported by EV since 
it's the strongest verification standard currently. EV allows to include 
domain names of third parties (in my opinion incorrectly), so adding 
wild cards doesn't change that in any way really.

We would be in favor for such a move and believe that wild cards have 
nothing lost in the non-verified (e.g. DV) settings due to their 
potential abuse. If at all, wild cards should be permitted with EV and 
prohibited for DV (if you want anything else than EV).
